Killing Matt Woods完成了澳大利亚悉尼市中心住宅的改造设计，为一对夫妇寻求一个与室内相匹配的极简主义生活方式。作为一个混凝土建筑，公寓的外壳由设计师对粗野主义建筑的偏爱所决定。设计的主要意图是创造一个简约的几何室内环境。
The project brief called for the re-design of an inner city warehouse conversion in Camperdown, for a couple seeking a minimalist lifestyle with an interior to match. Conceived of as a “concrete bunker”, the shell of the apartment has been informed by the designer’s penchant for Brutalist architecture. The principal intent was the creation of a pared back, geometric interior.
The west-facing open plan apartment features a custom kitchen and a mezzanine bedroom, which overlooks the living room space and a small terrace. The loft is flooded with light from a full height, glazed wall, counterbalancing the interior mood, which is intentionally dark and brooding. All interior elements have been created as “raw and extruded concrete monoliths”, as seen in the fluted kitchen joinery, curved ceiling forms, and the cement-rendered bathroom. The furniture selection features geometric forms and a muted palette, underscoring the overall concept.
This interior eschews the cliched “industrial” warehouse aesthetic and ubiquitous “Sydney” design approach, offering a fresh, yet site-specific take on the warehouse conversion category. Great lengths were taken to synthesize client direction and the specificity of the brief with a bold design approach. resulting in a utilitarian, cave-like sanctuary that is also intimate, light-filled and homely.
Design innovation is evident in the skillful reduction of the functional components into simple geometric forms that are evocative. In addition, although the brief was a concrete box – remarkably very little cement has been used in its creation. The “solid” concrete elements are Glass Reinforced Cement (GRC) – which has far less weight and cement than traditional concrete techniques.
