Studio Quarters


The brief was to furnish a 4-level townhouse in a leafy North Shore suburb of Sydney for recent downsizers. The client had two requirements; to create a calming and uplifting space as well as accommodate for items from their old home.

The east-west orientation meant the natural light distribution from one end of the townhouse to the other was vastly different. With very little outlook, our approach was to create a sanctuary within the home, focusing on colour, materiality and custom joinery.

The client’s age was considered when selecting furniture; robust, sturdy pieces with the appropriate proportions were the determining factors. The result is a carefully crafted contemporary home to an elderly couple who didn’t want the idea of downsizing to be a limitation on their lifestyle.
