The Rental. 23sqm. 2014. Rushcutters Bay
The interior design melds modest, unassuming materials of distinct architectural quality with the original, decorative fabric of the art deco walk-up block. A series of simple, low-tech joinery pieces form zones within the tiny space.
A solitary carpenter cut and assembled material on site, within the confines of the apartment, to create a kitchen, bedroom nook and storage blocks.
To conceal the bedroom nook from the rest of the apartment, a joinery unit with sliding desk was conceived. A steel shelf, fitted wall-to-wall, conceals the sliding door track and supports the weight of a storage block to allow the desk to slide seamlessly between.
