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.

The weightiness of the post and beam structure and the tactile grain of the Douglas Fir were at once seductive for both the client and architect. With such an exquisitely crafted timber structure, the architects were keen to honour the original bones of the space.

Converted warehouses are a dime a dozen these days, but how’s this for a fascinating case of repurposing? Lissoni Associati have taken an old private theatre and transformed it into a home. Monumental and so strictly restrained, this loft it so majestic it almost seems imaginary…
French interior architect Grégoire De Lafforest is the man to blame for this beautiful Paris loft. What I really love about this home are the countless elements of surprise and a unique one-off aesthetic. Every corner of every room is bursting with visual interest and personality, yet the overall feel is calm, natural and unforced. And exquisitely beautiful…
Today we venture into the Greenwich Village loft of James Jebbia, which he shares with his young family. Jebbia is the owner of streetwear label, Supreme. Quite the departure from his label’s aesthetic, his home is minimal, delicate and paired back. Perhaps the natural light pouring through those mighty steel windows made him turn to whites and neutrals…
