William Smart + Indigo Slam

Exclusively for the Sydney Architecture Festival we are very excited to be able to offer the first architectural tours of an extraordinary and inspiring house called Indigo Slam, designed by Smart Design Studio. Architect William Smart will lead a series of short tours of the home of art collector and philanthropist Judith Neilson. This is a chance to take a rare glimpse inside a building that has been described as "a piece of sculpture to be lived in". Indigo Slam was created in response to the opportunity to add a large residence of substantial quality and architectural merit to the diverse neighbourhood of Chippendale. Designed by Smart Design Studios to last 100 years, the materials used in Indigo Slam were selected to wear and endure and fittings to last, with operable elements mechanically rather than digitally operated. The project also aspires to an exemplary level of environmentally sustainable design with geothermal heating and cooling options incorporated into the design, as well as solar hot water and photovoltaic cells populating the roof.
