The Plywood Box on Hyde is a small-space studio apartment of 38m2 in a 70s retro apartment complex on the fringe of the Perth CBD in Mount Lawley, overlooking leafy Hyde Park. A little Japanese-inspired, the apartment was renovated by its owners, Tanya and Peter, in 2017 using eco-ply for a clean, minimal and spacious finish. A project that demonstrates that small-space living is comfortable, practical and possible – and importantly, reinvigorates appreciation for the 60s/70s apartment complexes in our city.
