Before the alteration, the flat was a series of compartmentalised rooms divided by doors. We opened up areas of the walls; increasing the perception of spaciousness and filling the flat with light. Circulation also became fluid, as the new openings allow different entry and exit points into and out of the spaces.
The emphasis is on the colour, texture and grain of the hardwood and veneer timber joinery, with neutral surfaces as a counterpoint to this richness. The white wall cupboards have recessed concealed handles. The floor is laid with large light grey rubber tiles and the windows are screened with light diffusing white roller blinds.
