Location: Spitalfields, London, UK
Project Year: 2012
Cost: £100k - £500kIn order to counteract the dense urban character of London’s Spitalfields, this flat interior abstractly recreates a piece of the New England forest familiar from the client’s home. An automatically irrigated living wall grows a range of ferns from the forest floor and brings a moist cooling presence to the kitchen area. Lighting behind laser-cut screens projects a pattern of the tree canopy across the ceiling throughout the living space. Bespoke furniture is made in raw steel and charred oak allowing the materials to express the processes of formation from which they originated.
