The project blurs the boundary between design and decoration. It is a highly personal response to the inhabitants. Every object has been considered, for its contribution both to the aesthetic but more importantly, to how space is used, with most items customised or designed specifically. The sinuous curves of the clad raw brass clad kitchen island acts as an anchor in an open living space as well as a guide to facilitate flow, with the added flexibility of being a dining table/workspace (with concealed pop up power). Materials were chosen for their tactility and patina over time – robust but changing.
