This 1930s apartment in Point Piper occupies the entire top floor of a three-storey building, and was untouched for 50 years before our client engaged us.

Our design solution removed walls to open up the floor plan and enhance access to views, which had previously been confined to just the sunroom. That space is now linked to the living area and kitchen by new openings, and a new 12-metre long window frames a panoramic outlook over the city and harbour.

We re-engineered the interior to revive its sense of grandeur, emphasising restored original features such as architraves, ornate plaster ceilings and cathedral windows.

New contemporary elements in muted colours – including the kitchen, bathrooms and joinery – form a quiet backdrop to our client’s collectible furnishings and art.

This is a finely crafted and detailed interior – understated and timeless – that reflects our philosophy of elegant sufficiency over excess.
