What architects do to make architects look good: Architects do a little bit of everything
The Sydney architect and designer Peter Schulz is an advocate of minimalism, and his latest design, the building at the intersection of Market and St. Mary’s Streets, is a good example of his approach.
It’s a modest space, and it has a minimalist feel.
A large, modern-looking roof terrace hangs over the sidewalk, and the design team has made use of a combination of glass and reflective surfaces to create an illusion of floating.
Schulz also uses traditional materials to create the illusion of being open to the elements, and to evoke a sense of naturalism.
While Schulz and his team may not be as well known for their work in architecture, his buildings can be found in the city’s commercial core.
They are also well-known for their design in the fashion world, including their designs for Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein.
You might recognize some of his works from the new Sydney Museum of Modern Art exhibit, but his work is also seen around the world, as evidenced by the success of his designs for The Sydney Opera House and the Royal Opera House in Sydney.
“I always find that the most successful architectural designers are the ones that are not afraid to use different materials,” Schulz told Architectural Digest.
“There are some people who don’t want to use anything but glass or metal.
And then there are some architects who don [have] to go for a very minimal approach.
And I find that’s the most beautiful approach to architecture.”
