Luxury inner city living, this former tea factory turned sensational Surry Hills apartment. The Edwards & Co. building, one of Surry Hills most recognisable buildings was previously used as a commercial space before architect Josephine Hurley got her hands on it, creating a one of a kind home. Residing on the top two levels of the building, the apartment is a generous 300 square-metres. Timbers, exposed brick, and white surfaces work together to create a calm, simple and very satisfying mix of textures. The striking arch windows shed light onto an enormous main living space, modern and understated in design, not taking away from the history of the building. Josephine continues this look in the master bedroom, finding a perfect balance between visual aesthetics and a loved room to sleep in every night.
The top level has a bedroom, terrace, outdoor shower, magnificent bathroom with accompanying sauna and even a hidden kitchen. This area is a fantastic guest retreat and can be used as its own apartment.
