Designed by Stanic Harding, Darling Point Apartment 2 is located in Sydney, Australia. The apartment was stripped back to concrete shell and the spaces were redesigned to suit the tight dimension between core and window wall whilst at the same time to maximise the sense of space. This was done by spaces being more radial than orthogonal and further enhanced by each room maximising its connection to full window bays wherever possible.
The use of joinery as the major way of defining individual spaces in lieu of walls gives the impression of a well appointed yacht. The edges of these joinery pieces encourage the spaces to flow into each other and provide for a softening of lines plus detailed and considered connections to the perimeter. The ceiling treatment in the public spaces is designed to enhance this circular sense by installing thin, flush fitting fluorescent strips radiating out to the perimeter.
