“Hidden behind the brick façade of Richmond’s historic AKM building, this apartment had endured poorly planned refurbishments in the past. When invited to work on this project we aimed to honour the building’s history whilst offering a new approach to inner-city family living. Working within the existing 80m2 footprint, we replanned the two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment to include an additional study & ensuite.”
From its double height ceiling and steel framed windows to the restrained palette of oak, grey limestone, soft whites and neutral furnishings this Melbourne apartment by Melanie Beynon is an exercise in the beauty of minimalism.
