Urban luxury hidden down a gritty city lane. Venture beyond the gates and this edgy, masculine interior is all about high end spec and industrial meets art gallery meets downtown glamour riffs.   Dark stone is washed by bright light flooding through walls of glass yet all is secluded and private. I’m real estate strolling scrolling in the Melbourne suburb of Carlton. Link here while it lasts.

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.

 

The conservatory

Usually I would be waxing lyrical about the barn conversion. I mean come on, great rustic kitchen, soaring white ceilings but sorry I only have eyes for one thing. OMG that is the BEST conservatory. Full stop. No contest. By MAN architecten, a creative studio for sustainable architecture and interior architecture based in Sint-Niklaas, Belgium.

It’s like I say time and time again. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Bennetts Hill House by Run for the Hills.
