Contemporary Round Apartment with Astounding Skyline Views of Sydney
After seeing what Stanic Harding Architecture did with an amazing apartment seen here on Freshome, we took another look at their portfolio and found another astonishing apartment in Darling Point, Sydney. After having been stripped clean, the whole apartment was redesigned to take advantage of the breathtaking views of the city, the harbor and the tree canopies of Darling Point. A beautiful walnut lining delimitates the core space and sliding doors make the connection between individual rooms. The combined living and dining offer a wonderful view of the skyline and the Rushcutters Bay. The architects better describe this project: “The existing air conditioning cabinet was clad in curvaceous metallic silver paneling to create niches for display, storage, a fold down bar and housing for the sound and audio visual equipment. This once unsightly element was now a very useful space maker, separating TV area from general living/dining. A splayed cast plaster bulkhead was installed in the general living space to enhance the curve theme, and conceal air conditioning grills while the general ceiling plane stays shy of the edge. The curved walnut paneling to the core is designed to contrast with the glazed perimeter and to anchor the occupant.” The core part of the apartment houses storage space and a laundry room, keeping the space private, while mirror paneling opens up the space a little more. Unusual and spacious, this apartment is a luxurious retreat from the stressful everyday life.
