Savvy design and a sense of drama characterise this opulent two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment in the core of Braddon. Nestled above the vibrant Lonsdale Street, the home complements its vivacious and evolving environment. An easy stroll to the CBD, parks and eateries maximises the appeal of this central locale. The considered interiors, with their signature bursts of iconic detailing and calming natural accents, deliver a space with flair.
Rising boldly from the Braddon streetscape, the Branx, developed by Australian company, Bulum Group and designed by Canberra’s Judd Studio, is the tangible product of a reimagined Braddon. Inspired by New York’s Dream Downtown Hotel and Judd Studios Curtin Conservatory project, the façade displays a playful series of elliptic shapes, bordered by climbing vines. The portico, a series of origami, folded panels, shelters and shades the independent, cafés and shops that occupy the street level.
Floating oak floors, a crisp white palette, timber cabinetry and black aluminium doors create a polished and pristine sensation throughout. The open plan kitchen, dining, living lead to a deep veranda with glass balustrade, providing seamless indoor/outdoor flow, light and aspect.
Smeg appliances, recessed porcelain kitchen sink, white Laminex cabinetry, enrich the culinary space – ready for creativity or a cosy gathering of friends – Nigella would approve.
Two generous bedrooms with floor to ceiling, mirrored built-in-wardrobes and two bathrooms complete the private, sleeping zone. Both bathrooms – a lovely punch of black and white, with mosaic tiling lending texture and matte-black hardware offset by timber cabinetry.
