And it also optimises natural light flow into the rear space.” The public foyer and elevator are screened from unit interiors. They also separate the secondary bedrooms and a lounge from the main living spaces, the master bedroom, and study. Adding to the overall uncluttered feel, the service utilities are all tucked away behind the scenes – for example, the air-conditioning is concealed up in the edges of the cove ceilings. Above left: Running parallel to the living spaces, the master bedroom also enjoys city and river views. Motorised sheers bring privacy and control over the sun. Left: All three bedrooms are carpeted, while in the master bathroom the floors revert to Jura limestone tiles. The cedar finish in the living area is also repeated on the bathroom’s vanity and the blade walls fronting the shower and toilet. search | save | share at
