The Horizon Apartment
Capturing a panoramic view to the city, The Horizon Apartment refurbishment conceptually nods gently to the geometry and rhythm of the building’s iconic architecture by Harry Seidler – through articulated volume, spatial arrangement and expression of materiality. Manipulation of texture and color tempers unfiltered light during the day and, with considered lighting strategies, creates drama at night. In addition to its celebration of the city by extending and framing the stunning view, The Horizon Apartment has a calm, embracing, cocoon-like atmosphere offering retreat and protection. The interior architecture is ‘quiet’ and introspective in contrast to the drama of the city. Heightened sensory engagement prevails within the interior architecture – by engaging visually in the playfulness and relief of the detailing; spatially, in the manner one moves about the apartment; and also, in a tactile manner when touching a door to open it.
