Curvaceous and almost dizzying, this sculptural modern apartment located in West Melbourne resembles a contemporary art gallery. Transformed from a butter factory into an unconventional living space by the creative minds of Adrian Amore Architects, the place is intriguing to say the least. White walls throughout make a good background for twisted shapes and minimalist furniture. The color palette is kept simple- few objects disrupt the grandeur of the black and white duo- resulting in a sober, yet strangely appealing design scheme.
The first level is an open plan living and dining area- an almost surreal social zone, physically constructed using a powerful geometry. Some of the elements, such as the painted pipes and massive pendant lamps descending from the ceiling, give a way the building’s industrial heritage. The second floor accommodates the bedrooms. In between- a massive stairway that spirals all the way up to the roof deck. What do you believe are the perks and downsides to living in a place like this? [Photographer: Fraser Marsden]
