What I Love About My Small Home:
I've lived for almost twenty years in a wonderful Modernist apartment designed in 1955 by a well-known Sydney architect, Neville Gruzman, and built by the same builders who did the Sydney Opera House.The building is 90% glass curtain walling and louvers, and although the apartments are small with high ceilings, they seem light and have a psychological sense of clear air and space. The whole flat was done in black and white, which unites the various elements. The bathroom punctures the space, which is reinforced by the use of linear monochrome panels. The weight of 'the cube' provides a foil against the lightness of the structure, which creates an essential whole, set in sharp focus. It is also blessed with fantastic views from every vantage point. I love going home.
