Flinders Lane Apartment by Clare Cousins Architects is an understated city pad designed for a young family. Located in a heritage-listed building in Melbourne’s CBD, the apartment is blessed with high ceilings and abundant natural light from windows along three of the four walls. The open, functional space utilises readily available, affordable materials to make the most of a small space and a modest budget. Plywood joinery was used to define spaces rather than build walls. The adults bedroom utilises 3 colourful sliding screens, which allow the room to be totally screened from the living room or opened up to allow the bed platform to be used as part of the living space.
Within the iconic Cité radieuse in Marseilles designed by Le Corbusier, Apartment N°50 was scrupulously protected in its original 1952 state, classified as a “Historic Monument” in 1995. It opens regularly to the public during the summer months to exhibit the work of a few of the most talented contemporary international designers within this outstanding space. A short series of scenographic installations has been realised over the years; Jasper Morrison (2008), Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec (2010) Konstantin Grcic (2012), and now for its fourth session, the French designer Pierre Charpin.
