I’m not sure I can ever really get behind minimalism, but this converted warehouse in Sydney transformed into a concrete bunker of sorts is really quite beautiful. That curved ceiling and the 2 story impact of it is spectacular. It’s incredible that such a simple architectural detail could add so much interest. I also love how the curve is found throughout the loft (sofa, console, mirror, shower door). Brutalism with a cocooning impact. Designed by Matt Woods.
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.
42 sqm of affordable, small space living solutions from Colombia. Think simple lines with an industrial/brutalist vibe softened by golden wood tones and textiles. Axxis Vipas by Bogotá-based Colette Studio. (Our first Colombian designers I think.)
“A period home’s minimalistic redesign and extension focusing on supreme detailing, exquisite materiality and a richly layered palette. The interior architecture celebrates clean geometries and a boldness of form. A restrained use of colour punctuates a monochrome palette while bespoke joinery and selected fixtures show a dedication to craftsmanship.”

Lock down is slowly being lifted here in Australia. We have been fortunate with just under 7000 cases of COVID-19 and 93 deaths in a country of 25 million. Did I just write that 93 deaths were fortunate? How life has changed for all of us. Through prompt and coordinated action by our Commonwealth and State Governments and with the united cooperation of our population we have come through this crisis and even though our economy is shattered we are starting slowly to rebuild. Step by small step. Our thoughts are with our brothers and sisters throughout the world especially those who have suffered horrendous death tolls and massive unemployment.
It seems a bit trite to do a post on stylish work places but I see it as a defiant raised finger to a virus and governments who aren’t doing enough. Eff you. We will come through this and we will one day be happy to drag ourselves into work on a weekend especially if our work place looks like a calm, zen like oasis.
