From a grocery warehouse to an engineering workshop, and even an artist’s studio, this warehouse in Sydney’s Surry Hills has seen a lot since its construction in the 19th century. At the hands of Ian Moore Architects, the building’s latest iteration is a stunning two-level minimalist residential apartment.
The main facade remains largely the same as it’s always been, but adds steel elements in place of the original timber. This offers a nice contrast between the old and the new; bringing the warehouse into the 21st century.
The apartment’s interior is at total odds with what you would imagine it to be. There’s a clear black and white theme going on in there, which actually has a cool reasoning behind it. All the building’s existing structures have been painted white, while new parts are painted black. The furnishings and decor were carefully selected to complement.
A dream home for any minimalist, this warehouse conversion is a unique and modern home in Surry Hills.
