  • There is a lot to be said for living in the city,

  • There is a lot to be said for living in the city, where you can have everything that you want and need

  • where you can have everything that you want and need right on your doorstep.

  • But there are challenges,

  • But there are challenges, city real estate can be very expensive.

  • And sometimes that means living in a smaller space.

  • Thankfully, good design can come to the rescue.

  • And that is exactly the case with this next, stunning apartment

  • that we're about to visit, here in Northern Australia.

  • Hey Doug, how's it going, mate?

  • Hey Doug, how's it going, mate? Hi, how are you?

  • Hi, how are you? Great, thank you! Really nice to meet you!

  • Great, thank you! Really nice to meet you! Nice to meet you too!

  • This is a very cool part of town that you're in, isn't it?

  • (chuckle) Yes, in the "it" part of town.

  • Now you're an architect, aren't you?

  • Now you're an architect, aren't you? Yes, yes I am.

  • So this must have been a really interesting opportunity for you to create something very special in your own home.

  • Yeah it was a bit of an experiment, so this used to be a

  • and was then converted to an apartment.

  • So when I came along and saw the plan, I thought that it could use an update.

  • Well, I am very excited to check out the inside of the apartment and see how you transformed it!

  • Can we check it out? Sure, after you.

  • Thank you very much!

  • This is such a great-looking space!

  • It's super-interesting the way that you've done all this.

  • It looks like that you've essentially constructed everything out of plywood.

  • Yep! I do want people to come in and see the apartment in

  • So what size is this apartment?

  • It's 28 square metres, it's roughly four and a half by six metres.

  • What was some of the key characteristics that you wanted to put into this apartment?

  • I think it was quite a primal instinct to

  • have a cave as you come in

  • and then open up toward the light in the next room.

  • So coming in to the kitchen and seeing a glimpse of

  • the light beyond is quite something.

  • So the existing condition of the apartment was really luxurious

  • in the sense that they had a full bath in the bathroom.

  • So, you know, the bathroom becomes a lot more utilitarian

  • than potentially what they used to have.

  • And I've thought the kitchen should absorb a bit of that space.

  • So what I did was knock down

  • load-bearing walls in this apartment

  • and to provide a clear space within the internals of the apartment

  • we put in a beam and the beam runs across the width of the apartment

  • It's about 7.4 metres

  • And what it does is it picks up the load from above

  • It's keyed into the walls on either sides,

  • and allows me to place walls as I want in the internal space.

  • And, talk to me about your kitchen space!

  • So I found that 1.8 metres is all you need for a kitchen.

  • And the width is quite limited, so

  • what happens is if you go deep

  • then you find you have more than enough space

  • for prepping food and then

  • maybe washing vegetables, and then

  • you just move out to the side

  • and then when you're washing up

  • the dishwater is where you need it to be on the right.

  • And what about the storage in the kitchen?

  • The storage is full height

  • it's just to give you that sense of space in the kitchen

  • and what happens is you can access it from both sides

  • so practically when you're reaching for food stuff down here

  • on the other side, there's a step-up that allows you to reach the items that are a bit higher-up in the cupboard.

  • It's really interesting what you've done here

  • because you've got these very beautiful, modern fixtures

  • that are built in with plywood

  • But it's offset against the original brick in the building.

  • Yeah, so high contrast is what I'm after

  • And I like what you've done here with the space for putting your shoes.

  • the detail was just to create an alcove for the shoes.

  • And then I see you're even hiding a washing machine in there as well!

  • and there's a washer-dryer combo.

  • kettle, rice cooker

  • and then it flows into a sort of threshold space.

  • And then before moving into the living space proper,

  • we have your bathroom in here.

  • Right, so what I wanted to do is have the tiles

  • visually continue from the kitchen to the bathroom.

  • And then at the end of that you have this full height

  • into what is actually a very small space.

  • It certainly does.

  • One of the things that I especially like in the bathroom is the way that you've done the lighting.

  • Having that light panel come through from the living room is such a nice touch.

  • small space

  • and that feeling is intensified by the colour of the tiles

  • and the proportions of the bathroom

  • so what I wanted to do was to have light at both ends

  • so you can still have that feeling

  • of openness and extension of light

  • even though it's a small space.

  • So it's about contrast again offsetting dark against light

  • about textures

  • That is undoubtedly something that you have done very well in this space.

  • Thank you.

  • Now I am excited to see what you've done in your living space!

  • Can we check that out? Ok, step through!

  • This is just so nice.

  • It's so interesting, the way that you've created

  • these two very different feelings/spaces inside the home.

  • The first area with the kitchen and the bathroom

  • felt a little bit darker, a little bit more enclosed,

  • and then walking into this space,

  • you just have a complete

  • here it's just a living space

  • so it's more about that feeling of relief as you come in to the light.

  • So the irony is that in a tiny apartment

  • what you want to do is to create some separation of zones.

  • So the functional zones as you enter

  • and the clear living space for the bulk of the space.

  • And what we did was think of the functionality of the three zones,

  • at the front, there's the kitchen, this sort of little threshold/wardrobe.

  • and then there's the bathroom.

  • The arrangement of which creates this combination of a portal and

  • And then we have your workspace here.

  • Now this is a very important place in your home

  • because obviously you're an architect and you do a lot of your work from home.

  • Yeah so, it's nice being able to be in the space,

  • in the mornings especially, and then feeling the sun

  • shift from this side over to the west

  • throughout the day and feeling that passage of time

  • within the living space.

  • And talk to me about the workspace that you've created here.

  • pushes the boundaries of what is practical

  • In this instance, I wanted a work desk

  • All the clutter and

  • and then what I do when I wanna play

There is a lot to be said for living in the city,
