Torbreck Apartment

“When we met our clients, young professional couple Mat and Steph their brief was for an island bench that felt like a wine bar. After our initial conversation the brief increased to include a renovation of the entire apartment for Mat and Steph, plus their two cats. ”    –  Kin Architects

The apartment is located in iconic, mid-century Torbreck Apartments in Highgate Hill, Brisbane, Queensland. Having an apartment in a building of this nature guided many of the design decisions, which resulted in a crafted living area fit for The Jetsons (inspiration from our clients).

Brick and warm timbers in the heritage building are complimented through a balance of modest and crafted materials in their design,  while the Tretford carpet colour – Freshwater – makes reference to the blue tones of the Torbreck facade.
