The brief for this spacious apartment in Milford, Auckland, was a minimalist style with an emphasis on open concept living areas without compromising on comfort.
A high-contrast design concept was chosen by Munro & Co. to emphasise strong architectural features such as the plantation timber shutters and to compliment the scale of the two-level building. The exterior colour palette contrasts crisp white plaster with a deep brownish black for the shutters. A grey natural stone flooring connects the interior to a spacious patio furnished with original water hyacinth furniture. Dark kitchen cabinetry and white benches repeat the striking theme while soft neutral tones used in furniture, furnishings and window dressings soften the living and bedroom areas in casual comfort.
