Originally a fabric warehouse built in the 1920s, this entire apartment renovation in Sargood House, presented the rather unusual problem of having too much space.
The owners required a more functional layout but also wanted to retain the sense of openness that originally drew them to the property. Highly important was a dream closet, a private and very personal space that would become the centre-point for the entire apartment. Assigning a purpose and function to every room created the intimacy that the space fundamentally lacked. To retain the building's original warehouse feel, ceilings were stripped back and left completely exposed, while elsewhere sleek finishes and minimal fixtures balanced the overall aesthetic.
