Thank goodness for Neometro apartment developments! Amongst the jungle of mediocre apartment developments popping up around Melbourne, Neometro stand out for their contemporary designs with an edge. They have teamed up with KPDO for the interiors of 41 Darling Street which is so fantasic as I feel that when apartments developments are designed soley by architects* and developers they can lack attention to detail and sometimes the spatial flow could be better. As always it depends on the developer client and budget. (*note: not all archtects of course, the architects I work with are amazing and are not in this category!) I feel that there are a lot of missed opportunities out there and guess what? Getting an expert that specializes in interior design adds major dollars to the sale price. I'm not even kidding! I've said it once and I'll say it again, we can't live on a facade. When an interior designer is engaged in the early stages, we consider the planning to design versitile spaces that add to the everyday living experience. With an indepth knowledge of interior materials and fittings we can specify the most practical and appropriate selections to add warmth and a sophistcated design aesthetic. We know the world's best practice when it comes to interiors.
And it doesn't come much better than KPDO (Kerry Phelan Design Office). The spaces and materials are beautiful. Of course this is not your average development, it's high-end and the location on Darling Street calls for it. It is fun to dream though...
