A common problem faced by most apartment owners is the issue of storage - there never seems to be enough and yet most stock apartment units are ill-equipped to handle their occupants' storage requirements until a personalised intervention is made.
The modest interior design scope for this ageing Southbank apartment involved refreshing the main living/dining areas and providing more storage options for the home owners. This particular apartment unit boasts a regularly laid out floor plate which presented an opportunity to convert an entire length of wall into a running bank of cupboards.
An uncluttered aesthetic of clean lines, use of cost-effective materials and concealed fixtures were employed. Bronzed mirrors in the buffet-counter recess contrast well against the simple material palette. The overall result is a bank of cupboards, cohesive in both design and materiality, that 'conceals and reveals'.
