Shortlisted for The Sunday Times’ British Home Awards for House Transformation of the Year
The client’s brief called for a two-bedroom apartment that had the spirit and sophistication of traditional and contemporary Japanese architecture without reverting to pastiche. The apartment was completely remodelled to create a greater connection to its re-landscaped garden, whilst maximising on space and harnessing natural light. The master bedroom incorporates a cedar-lined walk-in wardrobe and full height storage wall, which is subtly concealed behind the oak panelled bedhead. A steam shower with an engraved glass wall lets in natural light while still providing privacy.
