“This beautifully refined two-bedroom apartment combines the grandeur of Georgian proportions with superlative modern details. The apartment is positioned on the second floor of a Grade I-Listed building on Great Pulteney Street, Bath’s most spectacular thoroughfare, flanked by Palladian architecture.”

Can you hear me sighing? Honestly I am smitten by this stylish home. The interiors perfectly repeat the honey-coloured Bath stone clad exteriors, muted, relaxed, calming. The Georgian proportions are kept without sacrificing the luxuries of modern day living. Now if I only needed to buy a home in Somerset. Cue another sigh.

“It’s not one piece of furniture or color palette that makes a room come alive; it’s the vibration between the pieces along with textures and layers that tells its story.”

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.”
