Book to the Skies
This stunning apartment renovation seamlessly creates ample storage whilst accentuating the spacious proportions of the former chocolate factory building. Each space in the one bedroom open plan apartment has its own unique character. We've used vertical floor to ceiling bookshelves and storage to make the large and undefined entry area into a home office and extensive library and draw attention to the high ceilings. The shelving hides a myriad of essentials including scarves, bags, bike helmets, keys, printer and art supplies, and of course a lot of books. The timber rolling library ladder gives an old-world character and allows access to books right up to the high ceiling level. In the living room the new joinery has a horizontal form that extends the sense of space out to the windows and outside. Long low joinery and wall mounted art shelves allow for a rotating display of the owners’ extensive art collection. A custom folded raw steel stair provides easy access to additional storage space located on a mezzanine above the bathroom. All projects by Ande Bunbury Architects have sustainability and energy efficiency at their core.
