This Deliciously Curvalicious West Melbourne loft apartment by Adrian Amore is a knockout – that staircase, the articulation of light, the sinuous forms and fluid spaces… Everything about this project literally brought us to our knees. Emphasised by a monochrome white on white palette, the twisting, bending walls take centre-stage. Initially a much more square and conventional space, the interior took on a dynamic tone when the steel truss that cut through the space was removed. With much more room to play with, Mr Amore embraced the opportunity to create something more curvy and flexible.
Edwards Moore is a Melbourne-based architecture & design studio founded by Ben Edwards and Juliet Moore. Avid followers of this blog will be familiar with these crazy kids, as we’ve featured their projects a number of times before. Their work is serious, playful, energetic and provocative in equal measure. Driven by a belief in the art of architecture, Edwards Moore take each project as an opportunity to explore new ideas and possibilities. There’s no preconceived plan or formula to their work, other than a plan to be ultra curious and get stuck in no matter what challenges might come along.
