The flat had been rented out for a few years, was tired and had a dark kitchen area and an entrance lobby leading to a bathroom (and a view to the WC!).

The brief called for a renovation that would provide the 1 bed flat with a better flow, more light, that would still feel like a mansion flat but with contemporary and fun finishes that would be calm with some minimal splashes of colour and geometric patterns.
