Black Dot Office
Black Dot bought this space as an empty shell with concrete floors and brick walls to house their new Sydney office. The building was heritage listed which placed architectural constraints on the design, so it had to be designed with the existing building in the forefront. The architects on the project designed a versatile workspace with open plan and modular spaces.
Lane Cove Residence
‘Amiens c.1918’ Residence is a Californian Bungalow located in Sydney’s Lower North Shore. This classic and gorgeous home with architectural features lacked the additional layer of personality and depth that it really deserved.

Milsons Point Residence
Perched high on the prestigious Alfred Street of Sydney’s Milsons Point suburb was a neglected, tired and unimpressive apartment boasting harbour views, Sydney city views and centred in one of the most amazing places in the world. Our client, Andrew, a 64 year old widower, bought this apartment and engaged Mi Designer Styling to assist in putting his own unique stamp on it right away. Andrew saw the potential in his bachelor pad and was prepared to invest in creating something bold, daring and unique.
