This converted warehouse apartment was previously used as a space for a hair and makeup studio.

The living space retains its original character and structure but the architect Josephine Hurley made sure to modernize it when creating the 'Surry Hills Apartment' design. The main living room area features enormous arched windows surrounded by exposed brick and views of Sydney, while copper piping adds to the spacious, warehouse aesthetic of the apartment. The exposed brick is a common theme throughout with the designer modernizing the space with sophisticated wood paneling and minimalist decor.

This converted warehouse apartment is indicative of the design potential of historic spaces that can be reinvented to suit contemporary lifestyles.
