UNDER CONSTRUCTION: CARTE BLANCHE

The brief for this stunning waterfront inner city project is 'carte blanche' - a designer's dream come true! We are letting our imagination run wild and have designed a sleek, sophisticated and very suave inner city pad for our lovely client.

But, before the big reveal, there is a quite a process that goes on behind the scenes that involves careful planning, lots of fun and plenty of mess! As designers we are immune to this 'ugly' phase of construction . . . we see the vision through the torn gyprock, exposed plumbing and electrical wires!

The high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows create a dramatic backdrop for a modern, sleek interior.

We have stripped back the walls to reveal the bones of the apartment, ready to be re-dressed in luxurious hues and fabrics.

The layout of the apartment is quite unique with all rooms circulating off a central core. Each room has access to stunning Sydney Harbour views in every direction. The palette is designed to instil masculinity and, of course. a hint of luxe!

All will be revealed . . . in timber, leather and copper.

We have chosen rich timber veneer, chocolate-stained parquetry, jet black perforated leather (yes! just like a racing car!), touches of hand-blown amber glass and divine copper drapes with metal threads which will frame the entire apartment.

Stunning city views in every direction!
