Potts Point Apartment 8

George Livissianis
Thomas Ferguson

I have completely fallen in love with this apartment. Iconic mid-century furnishings in each room, a sleek and chic kitchen, and a dark, sexy bathroom.

George is responsible for some of Sydney’s most beautiful and successful restaurant interiors, including The Apollo in Sydney’s Potts Point.

Talented Sydney interior designer, George Livissianis, is no new-kid-on-the-local-design-scene. Although some of his projects have deservedly taken out a number of design awards in the last two years, I still feel like his work hasn’t been publicised and celebrated as much as it deserves to be. Perhaps this is due to the fact that Mr Livissianis appears to be the kind of man who’s more dedicated to his craft, rather than the art of self-promotion.

I was interested in design & illustration from an early age, had work experience at 16 with Denton Corker Marshall & at an animation studio. I decided on interior architecture for my tertiary education, did work experience for most of my university teachers, was picked up by Peter Geyer at graduation, worked in the UK, came back, worked for Burley Katon Halliday & now here.

Simple, minimal, crafted, unpretentious, calming design … Drawing by hand & detailing is fundamental. It’s a constant process of refinement. Not super decorative – it’s material and texture over colour and pattern. I don’t have a specific process, there is often an instinctual response to a space so I try to be aware & go with it. It’s a unique response to each project. Loose sketches are vital at the beginning, it allows me to be free, creative and form tangible ideas.

From my drawing table I can see books by Pawson, Adjaye, Niemeyer, Utzon, Aalto, Chipperfield, Putman, Scarpa, Murcutt, Heatherwick, bkh… there is even ‘food from many greek kitchens’ & ‘medditteranean style’ so I think the influences/inspirations can come from anywhere, anytime.
