A showroom, store and hotel in one, designed for property company microluxe. Micro in that it challenges what can be achieved within a small space through clever cutting edge design. Luxe in its attention to detail – from the exquisite furniture, artwork and finishes.
The space has been completely remodelled to include a marble lined bathing podium, (complete with mini tub) as part of the living space. A gold mirrored box contains a fold down queen size bed. The kitchen sits within a raw steel monolith, appearing to hover above the ground. An oversized industrial glass pivot door connects the interior to a private courtyard garden The existing bathroom has been completely re-configured with freestanding sculpted basin, angular mirror and customised folded pipework which also acts as a heated towel rail.
The aim was to create a series of implied spaces and dynamic objects within the overall volume of the apartment – combining materiality and beautiful objects without hiding the existing rawness of the building. Bringing the space to life and allowing guests to change the ambience as they wish. Bare materials are treated as precious items and preserved for their beauty and memory of the site.
