The space, originally planned as an office, was transformed into a one-bedroom studio space by adding a couple of partition walls. It is almost a box, within a box, still allowing light through by not going all the way to ceiling. The walls are actually not just walls, but act as storage space accessible from both sides: a wardrobe in the bedroom and a shallow cupboard, to keep the place as uncluttered as possible, in the living space.
A contrasting dark oak board, Magma Mayon, was used for the open plan kitchen area. A magma board also has a beautiful texture and tactile patina, which is achieved by a process of hand-torching and wire-brushing the surface. The textured Tate Bute with extra heavy saw marks gives the space immediate character and personality. The oversized herringbone batten adds pattern and a dynamic element to what is otherwise a considered, minimal scheme.
The bottle green velvet sofa adds a luxurious touch and contrasts beautifully with the neutral tones that form the backbone of the interior.
