Having bought a 1920s warehouse in Camperdown in 2006, professional couple Angela and Peter had a very clear idea of how to transform, what was then, an enormous blank canvas. “We wanted to have a space to blend our families, work and passions,” Angela explains.
The couple had visited select boutique hotels around the world and particularly admired the New York aesthetic. The brief to architect Andrew Vingilis of Sydney based practice, Corben Architects, was quite specific. “We wanted a contemporary, bespoke and sophisticated space as opposed to a second hand recycled furniture look some people associated with warehouses,” Angela says.
Fusing chic industrial aesthetics with state-of-the-art interiors, its ingenious design offers buyers a unique investment and wow factor environment from where to express their passions for art, design and collecting. In Angela and Peter’s case, the home has allowed them to incorporate their sport cars and motorbikes as awe inspiring objets d’art.
Zoned ‘Light Industrial’, it flows over 550sqm and features a flexible two storey layout that can be adapted as the social occasion demands. There is an abundance of natural light and ventilation throughout, with a choice of living and entertaining areas blending seamlessly with the light flooded central courtyard. A contemporary masterpiece with truly international appeal, it includes a vast concrete benchtop that peels away from the floor to create a one of kind kitchen.
Located opposite the expanse of Camperdown Park, the close proximity to Leichhardt, Glebe, Newtown and the CBD provided the cosmopolitan lifestyle they valued. This creative and adventurous couple are now looking to downsize and are on the hunt for their next exciting project.
