design et al congratulate NSI Design in their further shortlist success for the City Space Award.
The client bought a duplex apartment off plan and required a remodel and fit out to create a London weekday home suitable for business entertaining and relaxation. Originally a three bedroom apartment it was not necessary to retain these, as living space was more important for the client. The lower ground floor also leading to the outside terrace, was the master suite and storage.
The client requested colour throughout the design, this was done through integrating colour using LED lights hidden within spaces, under stairs and kitchen units. The floating furniture in particular the bookcase Nicholas Sunderland designed allowed the coloured panels to move around and flip in colour to create a Mondrian artwork adjustable to suit the mood.
With the Roche Bobois circular wave sofas in a chosen purple and off white, the designer created a rug from Stark in these colours and focused the section with again a floating media unit built to the specifications and a Ral colour to match the Island. Curtains were hand made with fabrics from Baumann and Jab and pelmets fitted with hidden LED lights to change colour. The mosaic wallpaper from Chivasso in the media space and dining room added texture and a luxury finish. The whole room became a colourful entertaining space fully on brief.
The design most importantly meets the clients brief of wild colour but in an adaptable subtle way when required. LED lights were remote and multi coloured across the apartment and this was fully on brief to create an apartment that was not bland.
