Phoebe Nicol was briefed to introduce light and warmth to this top-floor apartment with views across Sydney Harbour. While the apartment didn’t have particularly high ceilings, Phoebe created an illusion of space by adding or minimising architectural details such as architraves. The designer has also maximised space through considered custom joinery insertions in each space.
“Tactility and functionality were imperative when designing this home,” Phoebe says. Brushed silver stainless steel cabinets and honed black Quartzite bench tops introduce a robust feel to the kitchen, juxtaposing the cream and beige tones in the dining and living spaces. The designer aptly refers to this as “a beautiful synchronisation between raw and refined”. Timber and Marmorino plaster add to this synchronisation, imbuing natural warmth and texture throughout.
