Portelet Apartment

Transforming a bland, developer-built duplex in a modern building overlooking Portelet Bay into a sumptuous and exciting home, this scheme pulled apart the interior, to re-forge it as unique, bespoke set of spaces, filled with charming and sometimes extraordinary details.

From the spatial planning and complex services coordination, to the highly considered, bespoke detailing, every step posed fresh design challenges, which were met with excitement, accuracy, and rigour.

The details also set this home apart. Bespoke handrails and exquisite finishes, such as the micro-cements, and the liquid metal finished extractor hood in the kitchen are complemented by other quirky details, such as the choice of handles, and unusual taps that accompany a basin in the form of a far eastern antiquity. In the shower rooms, shower screen edges glow, as if they were not made of glass, but just shards of light.

This scheme has some almost other-worldly qualities, too complex to do justice in the short prose here. It can only be fully appreciated by the personal experience of it.
