How does an apartment come together as a whole? it comes together through its spatial thinking, its connectiveness with its lighting principles, with its flow of materials and finishes and consistency of flow of materials and finishes. As a result of our interlocking planning principles we were able to create 7 meter high spaces, spaces that allowed fantastic views of urban Brisbane to the horizon line.
Often in apartment design, you have internal spaces and we've used this to advantage by using these spaces with big sliding panels that can open up into living areas and these can be used as people require. They can use it for study's, they can use it for playrooms, they can use it for a third guest bedroom.
Our lighting was based upon ambient lighting using the perimeters walls and a blank canvas for reflected lights to avoid the sea of low voltage down lights that you find in most apartments around the world.
Our kitchen design was very much around taking the messy side of the kitchen activities away from the dining and living area and in so doing we've created what we call a butlers pantry, and then what's left is a show kitchen which works for cooking and minimal preparation adjacent to the dining and living area. We've created a kit of parts which is consistent throughout the building. Well consistent modules of design that continue throughout so even if you're buying a small single bed apartment, you've still got the high standards of design thinking that you would have if you were buying a 5 bedroom apartment.
