“There’s something fascinating about seeing something you don’t like at first but directly know you will love—in time. People are that way, all through life. You come against a personality, and it questions yours. You shy away but know there are gratifying secrets there, and the half-open door is often more exciting than the wide.”
― Vincent Price, I Like What I Know: A Visual Autobiography

Curvature, tactile and twisted, formerly a butter factory in Melbourne, white on white palette, shadow and light – I am very curious. Although, minimal, I am drawn to this space and love the surprise splashes of colour.
The concept for this project evolved as a natural intuitive response to the space. The first schemes were quite different from the final scheme. The space initially had a deep steel truss which divided the space in two, and a low roof to the south, making it difficult to extend and convert into a 3 bedroom apartment, which was part of our clients brief. After some analysis and costings, the client decided to remove the truss. This opened up new opportunities. It was suddenly possible to create a dynamic space, with moving forms, which is a language I am naturally drawn to – Architect Adrian Amore of AAA Architects. Photo Fraser Marsden.

For an artist whose work frequently represents the themes of anonymity, alienation and loneliness inspired by city-living, it is perhaps appropriate that Slinkachu biographical details remain vague. Born in Devon in 1979, Slinkachu moved to London in 2002 where he pursued a career in commercial art and design. In 2006, Slinkachu embarked on the first of his street art installation campaigns: The Little People Project. His miniature figures are left to fend for themselves in the bustling city, where they are then photographed and left to the abandon of their urban environment. These figures embody the estrangement spurred by the over-whelming nature of the modern metropolis, and incite a renewed perspective of the everyday urban experience to those who find them. This sense of isolation and melancholy, however, is accompanied by sense of irony and humour that makes Slinkachu’s commentary all the more poignant. Inner City Snail, is a satire on the overabundance of urban media. The snails are decorated by hand with graffiti, advertisements, or tiny figures and then left to go about their business in the city – albeit on a smaller scale, and at a slower pace, than their grander counterparts.

We do not use signs of exhibitionism, sharp lines or forms deliberately provocative, but a set of signs simple and sophisticated, distant past and future, materials soft and hard, light and dark colors. The end result will always create harmony, where our customers is highly classified and clearly identified on an increasingly uneven and ambiguous. Our study, already known for its versatility, allows you to move between design, art, architecture and fashion. Our clients are companies of fashion and interior design, but also private. For both of us like to interpret and actualize their dreams. The ability to collaborate with people from different fields allows us to ever deepen our experience as well as to encourage us to convey our theme.
It is the detail and composite of the spaces, the beautifully selected pieces in which sit in those spaces, the sensuous evoking a lavish ambiance, simply the juxtaposition of one room opposed to another. It is exquisite.
