A Brutalist Apartment Draws Inspiration From a Concrete Bunker
Inspired by brutalism and the industrial heritage of Camperdown, this apartment for two design professionals evades warehouse conversion clichés.
A concrete bunker doesn’t often inspire thoughts of a welcoming home, yet architect Matt Woods and his clients found an unexpected muse in brutalist architecture while renovating this minimalist apartment in Sydney's Camperdown suburb.
"The clients were seeking a more minimalist lifestyle and to create a space free of clutter and visual pollution," says Woods of the project, dubbed Perfect Storm. "De-materialization is at the core of the concept, and all elements have been reduced to their bare essentials."
