Apartment in Double Bay is the first of two apartments Architect George has completed in the Overthorpe building, both apartments are an individual reflection of the client’s way of life and personality.

This extensive renovation of the 1980s apartment seeks to reference our client’s love for colour explored in mid-century modern architecture. The blue tile colour is based on Le Corbusiers’ Polychromie Architecturale, Bleu Outremer. This is then translated into soft furnishings, joinery and light fittings.

Other materials and colours were then selected to harmonise with the strong blue feature elements, soft grey tiles and kitchen cabinets, as well as a naturally muted red stone benchtop and aged brass fittings and fixtures.
