Located below street level but with a Sydney skyline view, Brad Swartz found a uniquely challenging project in this 49sqm Basement Apartment. Limited by its heritage status he approached the project with a light touch, favouring freestanding furniture over built-in storage, elevating the kitchen, and extending it’s fixtures into custom cabinetry in the apartments hallway. These floating elements alongside the apartment’s lighter palette allow light to flow freely throughout the home, lending a bright feel to what would be an otherwise dim space.
