Her brother built the apartment and at completion they moved in with new twin children. This photoshoot has occurred 11 years later but the apartment still feels new.

Our client works primarily from home so it needed to feel like a calm sanctuary with a number of separated spaces whilst also being a home to raise two young children within.

Period details in the original apartment were retained, such as the bathroom door and all other doors were designed to relate to this period. We are happy to provide more information regarding the design and/or elements used within if requested.
