Conversion is one of the best ways to transform an old and unused space into a stunning apartment or office. It is also less expensive than building it from the ground up and allows the creators to take advantage of existing structures and basically reinvent the character of a building. The apartment in West Melbourne by Adrian Amore Architects is a great example of such conversion - the architects have redesigned it to an extent that it is impossible to recognize the previous use of the property.
The building, in which the apartment is located, used to be a butter factory, but now it resembles a modern art gallery. It consists of two spacious floors. While the first is an open plan living space, the second floor accommodates three comfortable bedrooms. Many elements of the apartment's interior were shaped like sculptures and have quirky, yet fascinating shapes that draw plenty of attention.
Their clean lines and organic forms bring a sense of artistic abstraction and sublime luxury to the interior. Where you'd expect to see world's most famous paintings and works of art, there is blank surface that leaves room for individual interpretation and possible personal touches.
Sloping walls and spiral staircases were painted white to generate the impression of lightsomeness and optically increase spatial area of the apartment. Accompanying accents, on the other hand, are black and highlight the industrial origin of the building. Furniture and decoration are sparse, which undoubtedly is projected to give the right of way to the geometrical construction.
