Lucy Glade-Wright says goodbye to Art Deco gem
Our good friends at Hunting For George let us know that founder Lucy Glade-Wright is sadly saying goodbye to her beautiful Art Deco apartment in Armadale.
This gives us the chance to have a peek behind the iconic facade designed by architect Stuart Hall in 1940 and see how Lucy has made this well-loved heritage building her own.
Externally, Lucy has transformed the property with a fresh paint job in crisp white, and returned the building to its former glory with a Palm Springs inspired garden now wrapping around the curved block.
Inside, Lucy has transformed the interiors of her apartment with an overall modern coastal theme to reflect the Palm Springs aesthetic of the garden. With the apartment already consisting of ‘great bones’ there was little structural changes that were made. Instead Lucy focused on cosmetic changes namely new window furnishings to accentuate the gorgeous curves of the building, replacing light fixtures and painting all internal walls to enhance the amazing natural light in the space.
The hub of the home is most definitely the living room as it connects you to the kitchen, courtyard and hallway. Towards the back of the apartment sit 2 bedrooms and bathroom, the apartment then extends further with access to an incredible rooftop for outdoor entertaining with clear views of the city.
