Location: London W2
Client: Private Client
Project Year: 2003
Cost: £100k - £500kStructural works were carried out allowing removal of walls to produce a large open plan sitting room with a kitchen at one end and access to a balcony at the other end. A new steel frame was inserted within the ceiling/floor void above into order to raise the finished ceiling height to 3250mm high in the new sitting room area.
The result is a larger open plan sitting room with a kitchen at one end and access to a balcony at the other end. The rest of the new accommodation amounts to two bedrooms and a bathroom.
The kitchen becomes the focal point in the sitting room and is designed as a strong visual element. While the overall design has very clean streamlined lines, the use of colour allows it to become an integrated part of the room as well as an actual installation/piece of art in the same way as hanging a painting or mobile on a wall. The colours were selected to compliment the ‘Blow Up’ screen print owned by the client. The idea is that the kitchen does not look like a kitchen.
