Upon entering this converted warehouse apartment, your attention is immediately drawn to its original brickwork and two stunning arched windows. They are the centerpiece of the apartment’s modern living room. In being so, they are the perfect example of how architect Josephine Hurley kept the historic character of the Edwards and Co. Building in Sydney at the core of her Surry Hills Apartment design.
A grand piano sits in front of one of the windows, around the corner from the entrance, this nook is filled with light. It makes for a beautifully elegant combination against the backdrop of a constructed wooden wall in an industrial space.
The bedroom features additional, large windows and an exposed brick wall. The white furnishings make the space feel light, and open. Their no-fuss appearance lets original detailing shine, and soft white textiles soften the exposed brick making the bedroom a dreamy one.
Besides keeping the historic past of the warehouse, the designers decided to keep industrial touches, too. I totally enjoy copper piping in the living room and in the kitchen that doubles as lighting, it gives a trendy touch to the space. Light bulbs dot the copper lines, combining art and function.
This apartment features a bonus upstairs that works as a guest space, except that it has far too many cool features to only use when guests are in town.
Each of the upstairs spaces opens up to a rooftop terrace via sliding glass panels. This gives you a calm bath away from the city or a chance to fall asleep in the breezy night air keeping your privacy completely.
