Boyarsky Murphy Architects

republic, sydney

Fit out of an apartment in the Republic 2 development in Darlinghurst, Sydney. It is a single space, 13 metres deep with a single aspect. The challenge was to bring light through the space and to create a fluid open plan space that would accommodate a flexible modern lifestyle. An animated curved wall separates public living from private space. The wall modulates domestic life, forming a backdrop to a sequence of kitchen, dining, formal seating and balcony areas. Its layered, textured finish is by the artist Brendan Lakin. A low curved entry screen invites and prepares visitors for the experience.
