About Sydney Harbour Apartment

Transformative Waterfront Residence: Sydney Harbour Apartment

Designed by the renowned Brooke Aitken Design in 2023, this exquisite apartment renovation in Sydney, Australia (pop. 5.3 million) offers a captivating fusion of style and substance. Perched atop the iconic Sydney Harbour, this property boasts unobstructed views of the legendary Opera House and Harbour Bridge.

Harmonizing Views and Interiors

Formerly a dark, compartmentalized space, the apartment now seamlessly integrates its breathtaking vistas. By cleverly combining rooms, the designers have maximized openings to frame the ever-changing harbor panorama. Moreover, the interiors are a thoughtful complement to the surroundings, serving as an artistic canvas in their own right.

Parisian Flair and Australian Artistry

Informed by the client’s love of Paris and the Hotel Costes, the design blends luxurious materials like Calacatta Vagli marble and chevron-patterned parquetry with playful furnishings. Leading Australian artists, including Lindy Lee’s mesmerizing “Listening to the Moon” sculpture, add depth and character to the spaces.

Revitalizing the Master Bedroom

The once-worn and dark master bedroom has undergone a remarkable transformation. By creating a new connection to the ensuite through a walk-in closet, the designers have transformed the room into a serene retreat. Bespoke paneling and carefully curated textiles in warm copper, golden, and deep pink hues imbue the space with a sense of joyful sophistication.

Overall, the Sydney Harbour Apartment is a testament to the power of design to elevate and celebrate the natural splendor of its surroundings. This vibrant, art-infused residence offers a harmonious balance of timeless elegance and modern flair.
