Sometimes, a complete renovation can bring the most inspiring interior design. Take for example this next apartment, designed by Stanic Harding Architecture and accompanied by light in every corner. The three-bedroom apartment on the ninth floor of a high-rise apartment building in Milsons Point was poorly planned and did not convey the inhabitant’s need for a place that would encourage the owners to move from their South Coast retreat back into the city. According to the architects, “the rationalisation of the planning allowed all major spaces to connect to the edge of the building and the wonderful views over the Harbour, Luna Park and Walsh Bay. The incorporation of the existing external balcony and corridor space into the apartment allowed for planning options that were not previously possible. The balcony now operates as a dining space but with the benefits of an outdoor space. It also links the main bedroom to the apartment in a way that reinforces the main bedrooms exclusion from the general living areas.” The wall panelling hides services, storage, laundry and bathroom areas and he use of mirrors on walls and doors extends the space, creating a bright interior.
