ARCHETECH MAGAZINE FROM THE DESIGNER: With a brief to take a lateral apartment and transform it into an amazing home.

We rearranged the layout of the existing spaces, redesigning bathrooms and the kitchen and introducing bespoke wall and floor finishes using materials commissioned especially for the apartment.
