INALA APARTMENT aptly named after the aboriginal word meaning 'resting place', this 1960s two-bedroom apartment is transformed, its key rooms relocated to maximise a small footprint and forge new connections to light and landscape. With its timeless palette of concrete, stainless-steel and oak, a new sense of calm now prevails.

Employing necessary reductive methodologies, Inala Apartment wholeheartedly embraces its spatial constraints, leveraging them to craft a home derived from elements that deeply question their value, purpose and necessity. The result rewrites the rule book on domestic environments in a way that is entirely in accord with modern practices yet distilled within the sentimental shell of 1960s domesticity.
