AshlarSurry Hills NSW Australia
Located among the terrace houses of Sydney’s Surry Hills, on the site of an existing rug warehouse, Ashlar is a boutique block of 25 apartments. The project comprises a mixture of studio, one, two and three bed apartments spread across six levels and includes a basement car park. Eschewing the raw industrial loft aesthetic, Ashlar celebrates subtle craftmanship and restrained glamour. Brick, zinc and other natural materials are complimented by high-end detailing. The brick façade is decorated with customised perforated screens and casement shutters, balconies are made of white tiled planter boxes, zinc cladding coats the upper levels, and solid planters border a communal terrace on level three.
Punctuated by pops of pastel colour, the interiors at Ashlar provide a fresh, elegant take on traditional detailing. White washed parquetry, soft grey timbers and veined marble are accentuated by aged brass detailing to create sophisticated spaces.
