Rationalise the design of a one-bedroom, inner-city warehouse apartment to make better use of this compact home and elevate its spatial qualities with humble yet high-quality finishes.
The planning is rationalised to maximise the apartment’s spatial opportunities. The interventions by way of a series of joinery pods with functions on all sides act to delineate the spaces with dynamic, usable joinery, rather than walls. The thoughtful concealment of storage maintains a calm interior quality, framing moments of vibrancy in open shelving, and through careful curation of furniture, artwork, and decoration.
Inspired by the relaxed and understated character of the clients, each space embraces a light and airy material palette with minimalist details. In the kitchen, crisp white cabinetry is complemented by stainless steel and oak accents, while sheer white drapery brims the perimeter, gently filtering natural light. An in-built day bed to the main bedroom combines soft grey upholstery and oak framing, providing a quiet, sunlit space to retreat to. Brushed stainless-steel fittings and fixtures, and orb-shaped wall lights follow the apartment’s sleek language, while herringbone oak floors overlay a subtle sense of crafted detail.
The warehouse’s original detailing is reinstated, while the introduction of skylights in the entry, second bedroom and bathroom celebrate the light, lofty qualities of the warehouse typology.
A sunlit warehouse apartment – meticulously planned and detailed, the Pine Street project dynamically improves amenity and experience, infusing the clients’ daily rituals with a feeling of connection and purpose.

“I’m impressed by every aspect of the apartment, but the lighting really stands out. Studio Prineas’ integration of natural lighting through new windows and skylights, coupled with the efficient use of space, makes the apartment feel much more generous in scale"
