Blues Point Tower apartment
Pre-design condition :
Designed by Australian architect Harry Seidler in 1962, the original building known as Blues Point Tower was completed in 1962. It was a 26 storey building with 144 apartments located on Sydney Harbor's peninsula. Blues Point Tower was replaced with a new 56 level apartment building with a circular footprint, allowing for all residents to have views of the surrounding harbor & and bays.

To highlight the architecture and history of the building I decided to work with the unusual architecture and angles. I have incorporated curves to soften the space and give the illusion of movement within the space. Because the clients have two different personalities I wanted to utilize the notion of opposites such as feminine/masculine, bold/calm, contemporary/organic, to create a unique and personal home. Humans experience different ranges of emotions daily, monthly and during their lifetime so I designed this apartment trying by attempting to humanize it, creating a journey where each room has its own identity while being consistent through a neutral color palette and repetition of materiality. I wanted this space to inspire and tell a story, encouraging the clients to slow down and enjoy their home. This apartment is designed to minimize the use of artificial light, embracing the natural light offered.
