This contempory home called for zoning and privacy, so we designed a new room by adding a wall and doors, a gas fire and built-in cabinetry to create a separate living area using olive green to craft a calm retreat. Coupled with the owner’s wonderful art collection and objets d’art, the room is now a cozy haven.

In addition, we updated the sterile kitchen with a new splashback and created an architectural lighting plan for the whole space, to create superior task lighting and decorative lighting to inject ambience into the space.
