The Studio. 27sqm. 2012. Woolloomooloo
The Studio offers a proposal for future high-density urban living for one person families; the fastest growing demographic in Australia.
A joinery pod was inserted to address issues of privacy, storage and a lack of living space inherent in apartments this size. The pod utilises full height, wall-to-wall sliding doors and accommodates an entry foyer, storage, equipment, washing and sleeping zones. The location, size and movement of the sliding doors allow for a single zone in the home to be utilised at any one time. The apartment functions as either a bedroom or a living dining space as required.
The colour palette of black, yellow and red is borrowed from the tiny fictional character Mighty Mouse and is used to demarcate space. It was required that, much like Mighty Mouse, the apartment punch well above its size.
