Project life: 2017 - present
Our first property project. An inquiry into simple modern luxury and what yo-pro feels like in the big smoke.
After six weeks of researching the apartment proposal for VSP, we arranged to take a look through the showroom on the 6th of August, 2016. More than 50% of the available apartments sold in the first night. 10 minutes was all it took in the showroom before we committed to purchasing the best one-bedroom in the whole building.
Construction commenced shortly after. For the next 18 months we watched the apartment building rise up. On the 7th of December, 2017, we picked up the keys from the lawyers and headed straight there to toast our purchase.
We didn’t spend our first night in the apartment until the 27th of December. We slummed it over NY’s and created some great memories and a bond with the neighbourhood. Over the first 6 months we endured the defects process. Fun was had purchasing furniture, planning custom pieces and navigating what it means to be property owners.
Seeing our custom designs come to life with the help of expert craftsmen was an enormous learning experience. This project continues to reward us in confidence with our design instincts.
