Point Piper Apartment received an Interior Architecture Award last night at the 2014 Australian Institute of Architects NSW Chapter Awards. We were thrilled to accept the award and humbled to be amongst other great award winners and nominees.
“This mid-size two-bedroom harbourside apartment with views has been converted from the traditional rectangular room arrangement to a space captivated, illuminated and animated by water, sky & light.
Walls and material fold and curve – capably handling the pragmatic needs of services and old, shared chimney stacks – to bend light and reflect views from the contiguous living, dining and kitchen areas to the ever-changing harbour.
Simple elegant curtain systems reinforce the singular nature of the living space but allow for change throughout day and night, offering privacy and reducing glare.
The architects have delivered a modern, comfortable home which challenges the notions of spatial separation by creating a free flow of space.
The essence of the site, the natural outlook, is captured and the integrity of the original building is respected in the palette of materials selected. The variations from living, dining and kitchen are subtle and tactile.”
