A bright refresh featuring pops of colours 

PROJECT | Alter Ego
DESIGN | Nexus Designs
TYPE | Residential 
LOCATION | Melbourne, Australia
PHOTOGRAPHY | Marie-Luise Skibbe

A bright refresh of an iconic 1960s Robin Boyd apartment, where classic Modernism meets the Centre Pompidou in contemporary South Yarra. Nexus Designs took a respectful and light-handed approach to reinstate aspects of Boyd’s original 1962 vision while adding light, flow and generosity of space. 

A subtle palette is accented with vivid orange pipework in a playful nod to 1960s design, and a more user-friendly corridor creates ease of movement in the project that venerates the building’s essential character while adding contemporary allure.
