Housed in a former Melbourne butter factory, the inner city apartment features dramatic staircases and a monochrome colour palate.

Originally converted from a factory to apartments in the 1990s, architect Adrian Amore has now removed a steel truss through the centre of the building and replaced the roof to make room for additional bedrooms.

A sculptural staircase made from steel, plywood and plaster has been constructed in the middle of the home, winding up to a recreational roof deck which overlooks the city.

The kitchen, living room, dining room and studio are all open-plan defined by the bathroom, laundry and pantry space, which are concealed behind curving plaster walls.

A monochrome palate of white on white with charcoal and black, plays with the abundant natural light which is drawn in from the large north facing windows and ceiling void.
