What is the ‘big (IDEA)’ behind this project?
The existing space was a Dickensian workshop, with leaking shafts of light through rusted old corrugated roofs. Our client wished to retain the original character and most of the texture was too valuable to conceal, so concepts and materials were introduced to contrast and reveal. Use of black form ply and cement render allowed a restrained and subtle transformation of the space into two interconnected apartments. Discarded Japanese cabinetry and detail were assembled to backdrop and mediate between the two apartments
