Location: Spitalfeilds, London
Project Year: 2012
Cost: 100k - 500kThis family apartment, created from a former industrial building, was last used as an artist’s studio by Tracey Emin. With polished concrete floors and strong industrial aesthetic it demanded a specific response. For the clients - a family of 2 adults, 4 children - space was at a premium, particularly the upper floors of this triplex where bunk beds were made and installed to CDA designs by Poisedale of Dorset.
At ground floor a study-on-wheels, spare bedroom and TV cabinet were made to the specific design intent of the client. The desk design was based on the client’s concept sketch. The spare room is created by an ingenious hinged wall panel-cum-screen and fold-down bed. The TV, hidden from view, appears as if by magic from a bespoke joinery cabinet, also by Poisedale.
This ingenuity of furniture design unlocks the charming, free and happy use of this warehouse home.
