Killing Matt Woods完成了澳大利亞悉尼市中心住宅的改造設計，為一對夫婦尋求一個與室內相匹配的極簡主義生活方式。作為一個混凝土建筑，公寓的外殼由設計師對粗野主義建筑的偏愛所決定。設計的主要意圖是創造一個簡約的幾何室內環境。
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.
