Josephine Hurley Architecture studio was in charge of decorating apartments in a suburb of Sydney (Australia). The residence of 300 sq. meters has found its place in the former warehouse, which is a part of the historical heritage. The building was constructed as far back as 1920-s and initially belonged to the tea factory. In more recent times it accommodated an office of an advertising agency. New functional elements of the construction required significant changes. The residence occupies two upper stories of the building and has an entrance to the roof, allocating the rest zone. The architects have kept all historical peculiarities and combined them with the modern style. Columns and ceiling beams remained a part of the renovated interior. While organizing the repair it was important to comply with the desire of the owner, who is a talented architect and musician; therefore, the architects have chosen functional and durable tinctures of white and grey.
