Crazy summer weather.
Thanks TOM FERGUSON and we look forward to the photos.
Because the view outside is so massive, TO INVITE IT IN requires equally massive purge, to allow for the space to appreciate the view.
After 6 months of design work, discussion with client…. we have finally commenced demolition (of almost everything) at Pinnacle.
Thanks to our extremely understanding client, as it was a radical decision to remove the bedroom (so it is now technically a “studio apartment” rather than “1 bedroom”).
We believe, to enhance the appreciation of the view, is to enhance the value of this location, which is to enhance the value to the client.
Emptiness is essential, so are the everyday activities.
All functions are part of the building, and can be packed away when not in use.
We need to take out the “tunnel” and enhance the “fabulous view” through design – how?
This is what we had to work with….
The Sydney Harbour Bridge was broken up in sections.
The client resides overseas in one of the most densely populated city in the world.
When the client comes to Sydney, we wanted to welcome her every time with the most Sydney-est icon, and most importantly, an “emptiness”.
A place which is clutter-free, a pure space to reset one’s self.
Isn’t that the ultimate luxury?
There was a sense of intense closeness to the Sydney iconic Harbour Bridge…
BUT! you can only feel that on the balcony.
How can we work with this?
