Arent & Pyke

I’m a long time fan of  the work of Sydney Design Studio Arent & Pyke, I love their clean aesthetic, eye for detail and their use of colour.

Barcom Terrace project is a sympathetic modernization of an 1800′s boarding house all of the images are gorgeous but the 3 that catch my eye are below…

The  unexpected use of concrete to create bench seating that then cleverly flows into the fire hearth grounds the room, the squab and cushion combination on the bench seat is again thoughtful. Default decision (as discussed on my previous blog) would be to have the squab full length with a multitude of cushions … I love the thoughtful detail of the short squab and the combination of cushion shapes the over-sized wall mounted lamp adds an intimacy to the space.
