Powell & Glenn used designers of the 1930s and 1960s as well as artists Alexander Calder and John Coburn as a springboard for conceptualising the sculptural apartments. Each zone is defined by curves that encourage connection and movement, accentuated by the water stone plaster. With floor-to-ceiling blackened steel windows, natural light and views of both the cityscape and bay are actively brought within.
The Mim Design team layered each space with a soothing, understated material palette of CDK Stone Saviour Limestone, Apex Stone Tundra Grey, timber veneer and wide pale oak boards. “I do have a deep love for stone and the very raw, sculptural quality that it brings to a home,” Miriam Fanning says. “For the kitchen at Sussex Street we specified Tundra Grey Apex Stone combined with timber veneer to create a solid and timeless material palette that benefits from the flood of natural light.”
