Apartment in the City

Next to Smithfield Market, this is a two storey 150 sqm apartment in a converted commercial space dating back to 1907. The ground floor room is the client's day space where the outside world is observed through translucent blinds. At the rear, floor to ceiling concertina doors slide open to reveal a gloss black kitchen; at the front, a double height void frames a 4.5m high set of windows. In the evenings, the steel and glass stairs lead down into an intimate entertainment room stretching the length of the site, surrounded by cupboards which open to activate the plasma screen, audio visual equipment and colour-changing lights.
