When the home you designed for yourself takes out the Best Apartment or Unit at the 2015 House Awards, you’re definitely onto something. That’s the case for Brad Swartz and his namesake Sydney studio, who’ve paved the way for designing small and mighty places to call home.
Brad Swartz and his team are passionate about showing a better (and more compact) way of living in our cities. The studio are focused on the most sustainable path for city development, by working within existing buildings to design spaces that are durable and timeless. Determined to take away the idea that apartment living is a ‘compromise’, their bespoke designs are all about maximising space with creative solutions. While Brad admits they’re often faced with a number of restrictions, these challenges allow for experimentation – and continued success as to how we can live stylishly at any scale.
We were fortunate to speak with the small space specialist on leading the movement and modifying the mindset that great design – not the overall size of your space – enhances quality of life.
