The Skene House is a warehouse fitout in North Fitzroy. The key to designing within a warehouse is to avoid carving the beautiful large spaces into small cells. No walls were introduced, instead spaces are defined between cabinetry and joinery items. None of these new items go all the way to the ceiling which makes even the smallest spaces feel like part of the larger warehouse volume.

The upper level features our micro-bathroom which is under 3 square metres. It is the only bathroom on the upper level and it is stealthily concealed within the kitchen joinery. The owner delights in challenging visitors to find the hidden bathroom, especially when they are in urgent need of using it
