This fitout by Anthony Gill Architects is an elegant response to the challenges of repurposing the tight shell of an existing warehouse for hospitality use. Using the sparest of material palettes, Berta deploys subtle transitions in space and level to create atmosphere. Supremely restrained, the intervention is testament to the fact that the creation of welcoming and memorable spaces can be as much about careful planning and the curation of experience as the application of sumptuous finishes and signature furniture.
“The designer has really thought about the psychology of space, and provided a whole range of different experiences in what is a very small scale project.” – 2011 juror, Toby Horrocks.
