bokor architecture + interiors’ brief was to amalgamate two existing loft-style apartments into one, with a new kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms. The building now known as M central was originally Sydney’s first wool store in Pyrmont in 1882. The wool store was then converted into a car park in the late 1980’s and also housed the motor museum which became well known for its slot car track.
The previous layout of the apartments devalued the use of natural sunlight and space; bokor completely stripped out the existing apartment to expose the structure and accentuate the raw elements. These raw elements contrast dramatically with the accuracy of the simple cabinetry- using dark timber veneer panels, a Fontainebleau kitchen bench top and elegant joinery items. The new minimalist interior allows the owners to furnish spaces and adopt them to various uses.
