Architecture inspired by refined industrial aesthetics

St Leonards was a collaboration with a talented building designer and highly skilled trades to craft a contemporary urban dwelling in a superb location. The project was a fusion between an industrial design space and the personality of the inhabitants. The carefully considered layout provided the perfect platform for an enviable inner-city lifestyle. Features, fixtures and fittings from an ‘A list’ of designers were selected for their design merit and to complement the minimal, industrial architecture. Everything was designed to highlight a restrained neutral palette of raw materials and monochromatic colours resulting in something infinitely unique.

The construction process involved ongoing edits to ensure that only elements essential to the design were included. With the clients’ basic needs and love of modern interiors and architecture at the fore, we worked to achieve a simple, low-maintenance building. Materials commonly perceived as cold were manipulated to achieve a textural warmth inside and out. The two-level space has a sense of contemporary form with whitewashed walls and burnished concrete floors and ceilings contrasting against swathes of blackened steel frames and geometric cladding. The textural triptych of concrete, steel and timber contributed to the design aesthetic and minimalistic approach our client requested.
