Fitzroy Loft by Architects EAT Melbourne

Melbourne based design practice Architects EAT were recently awarded Best Residential Interior at the Australian Interior Design Awards for this amazing loft conversion in a 125 year old former factory in Fitzroy, an inner city suburb of Melbourne. We love the soaring saw tooth ceiling as well as the fusion of respectfully preserved original features and the sleek new additions of steel, glass and timber, combining to create light filled open spaces as well as intimate zones on each level. The suspended foot bridge is an amazing addition connecting the mezzanine spaces. We love the soft grey kitchen and living space joinery paired beautifully with the marble finishes and the black steel framed glazing.

Design statement

Fitzroy Loft is a warehouse conversion inside the 125-year-old MacRobertson chocolate factory in Fitzroy, Victoria. The project is about bringing light and air deep into the home, while maintaining the integrity and context of its historical significance. Three internal voids are devised to highlight the original factory heights. While the brief called for a sizeable family home, keeping the integrity of the original factory’s bones was vital. Walls and floors that were built in more recent years were torn down to expose charred beams and remnant paint.

The interior is a series of spaces linked by three internal voids. The first void is the courtyard, which is directly connected to the main living room and the kitchen. The second void is located as a zoning device, separating the living spaces from the private zones on the lower floor. And the third void is placed at the very back in the library, displaying the original timber column and beam, and allowing the soft southern ambient light to touch the library and the mezzanine study above.

MUUTO Framed Mirrors

The new FRAMED mirror designed by Norway’s Anderssen & Voll for Muuto is suitable for multiple purposes sitting beautifully in the bedroom, living areas and bathrooms. Perfect as a stand alone piece or grouped together as a mirror gallery installation, these mirrors are available in grey, rose and taupe (or silver, copper and bronze).

In the words of Anderssen & Voll : “We wanted to create a mirror that was more than merely a reflective surface. FRAMED is a new perspective to the classic framed mirror; it is a decorative design piece that leads your thoughts to installation art. It adds not only the functionality of a mirror to your home, but with its depth, organic shape and tone-in-tone colour, it is almost perceived as an art object on the wall. The FRAMED mirror can hang beautifully on your walls alone or combined with other sizes and colours.”

Concrete House in Torquay Australia

This concrete house, designed for a young growing family by Auhaus Architecture Australia is located in Torquay on the Victorian Surf Coast. The house has been designed as a walled sanctuary, opening up onto itself, an internalised habitat with draping roof gardens and curated glimpses onto the adjoining wetlands. A portal opening in the concrete facade conceals a small secluded courtyard leading to the glazed front door. Upon entry, the house opens up into double height gallery space, glazed on one side to reveal the plan which wraps around a large, north facing courtyard. Each floor rests on slender columns, the fine lines counterpointing the natural mass of the concrete. Hardwood battens and brass detailing throughout provide patterning and warmth.
Builder: Oliveri Construction
Photography: Derek Swalwell
