Fresh modern apartment in Melbourne

When I first stumbled upon the apartment of Dan and Paul in The Design Files I was smitten; plywood and wood was just about everywhere. I kept scrolling down to see the rest of the home photos but the material pattern just kept repeating. And in a wow kind of way. The place, dressed in whites and neutrals, furnished with contemporary pieces and strategic fixture choices is a bliss to the eye. That thanks to Clare Cousins, architect and friend of the couple, who transformed an old and somehow not working apartment in Melbourne, into a fresh and completely functional contemporary space for the family.

Above: No space is wasted in the apartment. A small lofty mezzanine above the entrance door serves as an extra storage cavity.

Above: The master bedroom is literally built inside a plywood cube so instead of a big luxurious room the result feels like a cozy hideout nook. I definitely wouldn't say no to that!

  2. Within the city of Melbourne, it is common to find small spaces for an apartment. But this doesn’t stop those who are living in these ‘tight’ spaces, to be very creative in their design. We have encountered a few clients at Supercheap, who rented a small space for storage. When my movers saw the apartment, it is very minimalistic and homey, despite the absence of home items.
