Inner City Warehouse
The setting for this makeover was a development that had repurposed and melded two heritage listed buildings, a Victorian warehouse and the Bauhaus style Demco Machinery Co Ltd factory built in 1937, into apartments. The clients asked for increased functionality and a bit more of a grown-up vibe. We balanced the dual requests for an industrial overlay with a high glamour eclecticism – no problem! The elements of metal and concrete in the kitchen are echoed in the bathroom. The joinery throughout cleverly hides clutter, houses televisions, washing machines and pantry whilst allowing for a display of objet to seamlessly morph from kitchen to living space. Finishing touches included designing bedside tables and other furniture to fit into awkward spaces. The overall feeling is confident and exuberant.
