The client engaged an architecture practice hobbs jamieson architecture to revamp and maximize usage of spaces of the apartment located in Balgowlah, a suburb of northern Sydney.
“Like most apartment refurbishment projects the brief for this project was to maximize the visual impacts of the refit whilst being considerate of the value impacts of the design decisions made. Based on this we decided to avoid structural change to the building and focus on how small practical improvements to the usage of spaces could increase the apartments flexibility and sense of usable space. The refit resulted in the inclusion of features not present in the pre renovation layout including internal laundry, built in study area, day bed space, roman style bath/ shower combination and fully equipped kitchen including state of the art appliances all hidden away to keep the look clean and spacious. The result is a sleek, very practical fitout that has added around three times the value to the dwelling as to what was invested in the works. Along with, a significant increase in the comfort and usability of the dwelling,” explains Adam Hobbs
