Allen Jack+Cottier / Inner City Warehouse

Located in Sydney, Australia. This old warehouse conversion into an urban space with unique sculptural carbon-fibre pod in the living room was designed by Allen Jack+Cottier.

“Innovative and cutting-edge, AJ+C’s Mancave design demonstrates how modelling and fabrication technologies are used to create a sophisticated bespoke retreat.

The space
Part of the Surry Hills Warehouse, an AJ+C-designed home renovation project, Mancave is a sculptural carbon-fibre pod positioned on the warehouse’s upper floor. Featuring a semi-gloss finish of resin-faced foam, the cave is separated into two spaces.

The bedroom
A bed sculpted from the wall takes pride of place in the bedroom. A leather-clad floor and recessed LED lighting snake around the base of the room.

The ensuite
The ensuite, incorporating a shower area, built-in vanity, freestanding basins and bathtub, provides all the features of more traditional design. Conversely, the skylight exemplifies its originality, recreating the effect of a shaft of light filtering down through a canyon.

The design
As the warehouse’s central feature, the pod organizes and informs the spaces around it, while providing a private cocoon for rest and privacy.”
