A warehouse refit

Posted on Tue, 9 Jun 2020 by midcenturyjo


Camperdown Warehouse, a residential refit within a former car assembly plant by Sydney-based Archer Office. The original warehouse conversion in 1993 had 2 mezzanine bedrooms that cut off light to the apartment’s interior. The new design creates a flexible three-bedroom residence “using a series of movable partitions supported by a lightweight steel frame. Each of the spaces open towards the main volume, so that the flexibility in partitioning also delivers shared spaces that add a feeling of generosity throughout.”

Still helps if it’s somewhere stylish 😉 Communico Workspaces, a shared office community in Cremorne, Melbourne by Pierce Widera.

It’s still a scary world out there with most of us in lockdown in our homes and weekend work (or any work) is somewhere in a hazy future. And in that hazy future if we have to drag ourselves into work on a Saturday it better be somewhere stylish like the DOK Office in Kortrijk by Belgian design firm Decancq-Otté Architecten.


A bold modern extension

Posted on Fri, 24 Apr 2020 by midcenturyjo

A big, bold extension by Damien Rogers Architecture set the stage but it was the interiors by Resident Avenue that brought the drama into the way the owners used the space. “We meticulously curated an interior which layered naturally-aged materials, encapsulating the home’s timeless style, with colourful, textured accessories for impact and as a reflection of our clients’ lifestyle.”
