The project involved the conversion of a small rambling commercial building into 3 inner city apartments. Consisting of a single one bed and two studio apartments, space is maximised with a bunk bed mezzanine over the bathroom. Interiors are playful and efficient providing comfortable micro accommodation.
The new office level is lifted away from the distraction at platform and parking level and in doing so benefits the interior spaces with improved natural daylight and aspect. The new storey is conceived as an object in motion, contrasting to the enduring brick plinth below. The new rooftop element will be clad in a translucent material to provide a contrast and strengthen the redbrick base.
