European daring and dash, not often spied in Kingston apartments, inspires creativity where a plethora of beige tends to dominate.

Robust and full of character, ‘The Terrace’ exhibit a heavy influence of Scandinavian modern design, with a focus on craftsmanship, materials, and clean lines, the philosophy behind the style remains relevant today.

Emerging alongside the modernist movement, the Scandinavian design of the era was also emboldened by the Nordic region’s cold, short winter days and a desire for interiors to be cozy yet bright. Well suited to our Canberra climate, it’s no surprise the solar access of the design is accentuated throughout with full length glass and multiple balconies. The original footprint included a sauna on the upper level, with a privately enclosed balcony to soak up the northern rays. This is now converted to a third bedroom and bathroom, a private sanctuary spilling out to it’s large balcony terrace.

The home gives a breath taking first impression, opening out to a split-level living and dining room filled with sunshine through full, north facing  expanses of glass. The adjoining balcony is equally impressive, spanning the length of the apartment and effortlessly extending the living space. The delightful, semi-open kitchen and breakfast bar has been lovingly maintained, with high quality appliances installed for ease of use. The use of levels in the open plan living allows for a view across the lounge to the windows and balcony, creating a seamless sense of connectivity throughout the spaces. 

Renewed interest in mid-century design has inspired older-style apartments to be sought after for their integrity of design, and focus on form and function. The Nordic influenced interiors have favoured pale-coloured walls and flooring, flexible spaces free of clutter to allow for a minimalist look and feel.

For lovers of this design and life in an established vibrant Canberra precinct, the nordic.home is one to experience. 

Function combined with inspiration from nature creates a very warm strain of modernism that is relatable and enduring.   From the moment you enter the secret garden beyond the gates of the boutique residences, you will find yourself wondering if the Kingston Shops are truly just across the road. Private, tree-lined walkways through tranquil landscaped grounds lead down the complex to apartment.14, with a beautiful elevated aspect to the common gardens.
There is so much to love about life in old Kingston – a short stroll across the road for your morning coffee, afternoon walks around the historic Telopea Park and Lake Burley Griffin, catching up with loved ones at one of the many local restaurants, and a little bit of boutique shopping on a lazy weekend! The Kingston Precinct has always been a vibrant place to call your local, even more so now with the inspired renewal of the shops and the buzz that surrounds it all.
