The key to the design responded to the heritage context and complemented the modest material palette. The artful masonry letting sunlight shoot through seperate openings and from the highest points of the exterior into the interior. The two buildings are connected via a glazed glass link hidden behind the perforated bricks and the central courtyard. But it wasn’t just their aesthetic appeal that made these bricks a prominent material.
The interior is a wonderful compilation of angular lines and subtle tonal textures that respond to the existing heritage building. The focal point of the living space is the sculptural staircase, leading to a study nook that is enhanced by the inclusion of our Polar Desk Lamp. Instead of being separated by walls, the open plan shared spaces are delineated by a series of levels that “choreograph an engaging journey through the various components of the space”.
