“An exquisite refurbishment of a Brisbane apartment perched above the city skyline. Echoing Seidler’s sentiments within the architecture, form & function evolved through a play on curves, cantilevers, materiality & art as an integrated expression of ingenuity.”
The Harry Seidler building in Brisbane is iconic but the reimagining of this apartment high above the city is a perfect balance between bold new living and sympathetic referencing of Seidler’s design aesthetic. Avian Apartment by Alicia Holgar.
“A calm, refined atmosphere that celebrates the clients’ personalities has been created through the blending of styles within the shell of the existing home. Considered simplicity with mid-century influences were the driving force behind the design. A luxurious and minimal interior has been created through layered materials and textures.”
Considered simplicity – it’s a beautiful design concept. One I would hope I could adopt. Lindfield House by Sydney-based Daniel Boddam.
“Located in the old Toy Factory Lofts in Downtown Los Angeles, the 850 sf studio loft underwent a full interior architectural remodel as well as re-space planning, and custom designed millwork. There was a request for a separate semi private bedroom area, new custom designed kitchen and larger bathroom. New entry wall and dividing custom shelving unit was placed to create privacy and allow for porosity and visual connectivity to the rest of the space. Custom details and an existing concrete column was re purposed as a back drop for a custom bench and side table.”
Hands up who daydreams of living in an industrial style loft. OK I’d probably have to ditch the husband and the large dog to make the dream come true or at least keep the space looking so wonderful. Toy Factory Loft by Mass Studio.
Oh to have a light filled, art filled, three bedroom, muliple reception room, terrace gardened, super stylish Upper East Side apartment. Oh to have a sleek lined, minimalist chic home. Oh to have the wherewithal to afford one! A dream New York apartment by Timothy Brown Studio.
Warm and sophisticated with a tight colour palette of greens, tan and cream with pops of dramatic black this San Francisco house has ample entertaining spaces with low slung furniture to accentuate rather than block the view. After all if your Russian Hill home looks out to Alcatraz Island then it’s always going to be about the view. Joyce Downing Pickens of JDP Interiors.
