Designed by Eva-Marie Prineas, Studio Prineas
This apartment occupies a wing of a 1960s apartment in Darling Point, Sydney, resulting in a perimeter that has unobstructed views to Sydney Harbour.
The original planning had a disconnected entry from the key social spaces.
Conceptually, the plan was reworked to provide clarity and simplicity to the elemental reading of the interior.
The interior strategy works to unite the disconnected entry and key social spaces.
A new element inserted into the interiors reworks a skirting datum that, in places, pulls out as rich timber & steel joinery pieces and other times is read as floor threshold, wall panelling or external deck.
There is a reverence for the potential of the materials which have been used in a limited and deliberate way.
Rich timbers and opulent cherry tones combine with natural and expressive bold veining stone work, taking their cues from the spirit of the original architecture whilst providing a contemporary reading of the apartment.
