Walls have been blanketed with the same wood-effect cladding, concealing even the bedroom and storeroom doors and bringing warmth to the space. The only breaks to this feature are the entrance to the kitchen and the built-in bookshelf.
The custom bookshelf breaks the simplicity of the seamless feature wall in the communal space. The unit is composed of powder coated steel shelves and dividers with tiles forming the back.
Once a common bedroom, the new dining space features a long and handsome-looking wooden dining table with a matching bench. A bar counter by the windows adds an extra spot in the house to hang out with a drink.
To give the floors the appearance of cement screed, stucco finishing was applied for a cement-textured effect. Bedroom doors on the left and right have been concealed with the same cladding as the walls for a seamless look.
A small study nook was carved from the wall beside the entrance to the common bedroom. While the design is driven by simplicity, this space has everything one would need in a home office – ample lighting, power sockets, overhead shelves, and a fitted desk. It even has pocket doors to conceal it when not in use.
