Old Apartment Refurbishment to Contemporary Minimalist Living Space

When a couple, an architect and a building contractor, found an untouched apartment in a 1930s block in London, it was sure to become an original and exciting project.

Unusually, it was set over two floors, was in a sought-after location and ripe for refurbishment. It was relatively easy to remove internal walls and get rid of the small rooms even the concrete staircase, set into a narrow hall, was removed and replaced by a transparent glass-and-steel structure.

Colour has been chosen with great care and is used in block on the walls and kitchen units, and even the pair of red sofas in a corner of the living-room continue the use of pain, strong colours as a statement.

The apartment is very light, enhanced by the use of reflective surfaces, such as glass and highly polished stainless steel in the kitchen. The furnishings are a mix of designer names, Ikea and custom-made pieces.

Upstairs it was possible to reconfigure the space to include an office, bedrooms and a sleek bathroom. Once again, mirrored glass helps to enlarge and light up enclosed spaces.
