Aesop opens in Balmain

| May 4, 2014 | 3 Comments

Aesop opens in Balmain with respectful reinvention. Created in collaboration with local designer Henry Wilson, the design for Aesop Balmain emerged from an understanding of the area, materials recovered on-site, and the context of setting. Raw sandstone walls, fireplaces and hidden doorways revealed during removal of the former fit-out have been retained and exposed; tinted concrete terrazzo references local mid-century apartment buildings. Pale native timbers and a soft palette harmonise with abundant natural light.
