In the foyer, the existing slate flooring has been retained and cleaned to showcase its beautiful, natural texture and colours. Inherently, this resulted in reduced waste and a part of the apartment’s history was retained. The living room and dining features many handcrafted pieces of furniture made from wood, rattan and metal producing an Arcadian quality throughout the spaces, which not only adds character but also a liveliness unique to this home. A bespoke suspended light fixing hovers juxtaposed to the handcrafted dining table and with its intricately detailed metal shade, brings an industrial flavour to contrast against the natural materials. Part of the wall behind where the TV console is located has been hand contoured and left raw, which runs and collides with the smooth painted finish of the other wall surfaces. The simplistic styling echoes throughout this home within the furniture and lighting that appears around this home.The main goal was to promote the use of sustainable design by efficiently incorporating the reuse of valuable, limited resources in their creations. As environmental awareness is something we are also passionate about, this allowed for both designer and artists to collaborate and work artistically together with great success.
