CREATING CONNECTIVITY BETWEEN INTERLOCKING SPACES

Designed by Guy Stansfeld Architects, we refurnished this three-bedroom property with the aim of creating connectivity between the interlocking spaces. Our brief was to temper the mood of its previous interiors which had been Brutalist in style and featured wooden and angular pieces, with heavyweight materials.

SOFTENED USING COLOUR AND TEXTURES

We softened the space using colour and textures. Rich yellows, soft greys and vibrant oranges served as the space’s warming palette, accented by flashes of blue through eye-catching artwork, ornamental vases and curtains, and when lit, the vivid amber of the gas fire flame.

LIGHTWEIGHT MATERIALS TO LIGHTEN THE AMBIENCE

Our colour scheme also included paler hues of lighter blues, yellows and greys on bedroom and sofa cushions. We combined these with lightweight materials, a white cotton bedspread and pale grey sofa throws to lighten the ambience.

SHAPE AND PATTERN

To connect interlocking spaces, we repeated rectangular and circular patterns and included a number of geometric pieces from Art Deco-style bar stools to symmetrical mirrors.

CREATING DISPARITY WITHIN THE HOME

Our main challenge was accommodating the open plan design of the space; with few enclosed areas we had to create different zones for different purposes throughout. This meant that no space was left unconsidered when reimagining the home.

MAKING STATEMENTS THROUGHOUT

We wanted every design element to uphold the overall feel of a carefully considered, yet comfortable and welcoming home. The staircase for instance, with its contrast white edge and set against wood paneled walls, mimics the bold use of geometric shapes as decoration which is present in other areas of the home.
