A retrofitting of one of the units in a celebrated silo apartment complex in Melbourne. Due to the unusual geometry of these silo rooms, we set about celebrating these volumes by introducing a series of joinery in these rooms, each with a different theme. Drawing inspiration from the black obelisk in 2001: A Space Odyssey for the free standing bedroom unit, we freed up and removed the built-in wall that contradicted with the circular geometries. The study and media room takes on the role of a study during the day with the desk next to the window, and night time it turns into a sci-fi inspired media room.
