Australian architecture firm Lawless & Meyerson has designed the minimal renovation of ‘Penthouse One’ in the prestigious area of east Sydney, Australia.

The polished apartment has 360-degree views over its city surrounds, which includes views of the waters of Sydney Harbour, the bridge that crosses over it, the famed Opera House, and the nearby Botanical gardens. “This original 1970s penthouse apartment was crying out for a renovation,” reads a project description provided by Lawless & Meyerson. “The brief was for a clean, modern, unadorned space which maximised the light and panoramic views of Sydney harbour.” Materiality is the focus throughout, with the elegant contrast of dark and light a notable characteristic of the apartment. The living and kitchen area features a marble kitchen island bench, sandblasted stainless steel bench tops, and bronze and mirrored cabinetry to conceal possessions that aren’t necessary for display. White wire-brushed veneer is featured across walls in the living room, joinery, and bedrooms, where the master suite was modified to incorporate a large ensuite and robe. The bathroom’s spacious, free-standing bathtub and beige porcelain-tiled walls add a touch of luxury to the distinctive apartment.
