Once a cramped, dark and poorly configured space, an entire re-design was required in order to create the openness the client desired. The overall objective was to have one continuous eye-line, from bedroom through to living.

Such a large redesign required an extensive demolition stage, made even more intense by site access. The kitchen, a previously awkward and dark space was re-positioned and incorporated into the living space by removing the dividing wall separating them.
Flooded with natural light, afforded by the open-plan layout, the kitchen becomes part of the livable space.
Fully integrated appliances and clever cabinetry were used to maximize storage and improve functionality while mirroring the stylish clean lines now seen throughout the apartment.
