Behind the façade of sculpted concrete lies a liveable urban home designed in cement, steel and glass by the team at Smart Design Studio for an avid art collecting client.

Flanking a newly created park in Sydney’s inner city suburb of Chippendale, sits a home designed to last for over 100 years – both in function and in form. Here architect William Smart and the team at Smart Design Studio have been commissioned by the owners to create a home befitting of both thier love for art and their passion for design with longevity. The grand, impressive staircase paved with pale brick floors and curved, white rendered walls, leads up to the bedrooms on the first floor overlooking the park below. In contrast to this expansive staircase, living areas flowing out onto the stair hall have been designed as informal, intimate spaces. On the second floor, sitting and dining rooms have been divided by screens for further intimacy while in the kitchen, sky lights have been used to add light while also retaining privacy from the street below.
