Upon entering this converted warehouse, your attention is immediately drawn to the original stonework and two stunning arched windows. They are the heart of the modern living room of the apartment. In this way, they are the perfect example of how architect Josephine Hurley has kept the historic character of the Edwards and Co. building in Sydney at the center of her Surry Hills apartment design.
A grand piano sits in front of one of the windows, around the corner from the entrance, this corner is full of light. It makes a beautifully elegant combination against the backdrop of a constructed wooden wall in an industrial room.
The bedroom has additional large windows and an exposed wall. The white furniture makes the room feel light and open. Their uncomplicated appearance allows original details to shine, and soft white textiles soften the exposed brick and make the bedroom a dreamy one.
In addition to the historical past of the warehouse, the designers decided to add industrial accents. I like copper pipes in the living room and in the kitchen, which also serve as lighting and give the room a trendy touch. Light bulbs shape the copper lines and combine art and function.
This apartment has a bonus upstairs that doubles as a guest area, with the exception that it has way too many cool features to only be used when guests are in town.
Each of the rooms on the upper floor opens onto a roof terrace via sliding glass panels. This gives you a quiet bath away from the city or the chance to fall asleep in the breezy night air and have complete privacy.
