Three years in the making, this exciting new build created by Fletcher Crane Architects consists of an insertion to the underside of an existing property in central London.
This project has been nominated for multiple design awards.
The Furniture Union assumed the position of Interior designers and product specifiers for this three-bed, three-bathroom luxury apartment built from a CLT (cross laminate timber) G Frame.
It was built off site and inserted into a dead space at the bottom of an apartment block, situated amongst beautiful water gardens.
To design, supply all product and provide the interior architecture and design throughout the construction process, and furnish for rental. To maximise potential space in the new build element to maximise storage and ensure all bathrooms were en-suite.
Working with exposed timber walls provided design and palette limitations. It also meant all wiring and plumbing had to be meticulously and accurately planned prior to construction and routed into the walls off site.
All materials selected where inspired by the existing tower block and surroundings. The elemental, raw and simple finishes palate transport the outdoors in, through the extensive glazed perimeter.
The CLT frame came with its own challenges which meant adopting appropriate alternative lighting and accessories that communicated the design language and illuminated the space adequately.
By selecting oak fittings we were able to maintain a consistent scheme throughout, linking the new space with the existing.
A light, bright and stunning architectural property with a neutral yet daring palette. All three double beds achieved en-suite bathrooms and the living/dining/kitchen area is generous in size, welcoming yet striking and stark.
