Kitty Burns

Nestled below Melbourne’s iconic Skipping Girl, we saw an opportunity to give Kitty Burns a dual personality, resulting in a space that capitalises on contrast. With an aim of creating a space that would feel homely to the residents of the Haven apartment complex, we introduced a pitched roof design into the space, embraced the natural light available and chose design elements that would complement, not compete with, the surrounding Yarra Bend.

We played on an idea of Kitty having a playful side while Burns was the more disciplined of the pair, a contrast reflected in every element of the design – pale turquoise tiles contrast with strong overhead structures, while clean lines of the pitched roof design feature are arranged at varying heights to create a similar feeling of juxtaposition. Fusing mischief with structure, frivolity with discipline, Kitty Burns embodies the iconic Skipping Girl personality in a pleasant, light-filled space.
