To visually organize the space the existing finishes and fittings were stripped away to reveal its basic architectural layout. With a cleared palette, space use and storage were maximized by carving out or augmenting the irregular shapes presented by the architecture. All wall surfaces, existing and new, were limited to a neutral white finish to create a seamless integration with the ceiling structure, allowing the space’s inherent sculptural quality to be enhanced.
In response to the owner’s desire for an inviting, warm retreat, a natural walnut was used throughout to anchor and reinforce the unity of the space. Juxtaposed against a bright architectural envelope, plush, engaging fabrics and contemporary lighting infuse a dash of luxury while classic modern furniture pieces provide functionality and a simple sophistication.
