Melbourne Loft

With its sweeping ceilings, solid timber storehouse doors and arched wired windows, this classic loft-style apartment provided us with solid bones to re-imagine a former industrial space.

Located in a heritage building on Little Bourke Street Melbourne, this apartment once housed a dressmaker’s shop. In our design approach we successfully distilled the original charm and character of this historic building, while introducing features that enhance and maximise the living space in a New York loft style. The new floor plan for this one-bedroom dwelling is comfortable, generous and filled with space-saving design.

The large sliding glass screen divides the master bedroom and built in robe from the kitchen, lounge and dining areas, separating spatial program while keeping them integrated through a dynamic play of light and movement. Through the new design we made sure that we maxmised light in every room.

With its white washed walls, robust surfaces, offset by the building’s original architectural features, this project provides the ultimate city loft living experience. Doors and windows open onto the adjoining lane providing the occupants with option of sanctuary or inner-city stimulation.
