I don’t know about where you come from but here is Australia these kind of apartments are common. Whether a new build or as in this case a warehouse conversion the developer maximises their profit by minimising the occupant’s square metres by building the bedroom up on a mezzanine floor. Not my favourite type of living but this little apartment in Melbourne’s Fitzroy (of course!) makes the most with what it has been given. An ivy clad courtyard provides a beautiful outlook through a double height window while the owner’s vintage vibe and love of books injects life into what could be a pokey little box.  Exposed beams and judicious use of voids are little added extras. The sad thing is this inner city pad has a guide price of over $1 million when it goes to auction. Ouch. Link here while it lasts.

I hate to play favourites but when it comes to real estate stalking I love the inner Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy. Gritty and funky, artistic and happening, inner city history and innovation. From small redo apartments to OTT heritage conversions, terrace houses to warehouses. Click on the images to be taken to the listings while they last. Via realestate.com.au.
