The Owners came to us and said that this was their slice of luxury – having worked so hard in their own business this was to be their retreat.
The apartment had one oversized bedroom and a utilities room. The utilities room had a second toilet and laundry facilities as well as a large storage robe. The utilities room was never used and a waste of precious space. This was to become a guest room.
We reconstructed the oversize bedroom to take a small amount of space to form a hallway to access the en-suite that would turn into a bathroom (entering off the hallway from the main living area). The laundry facility was moved into the kitchen area - hidden in a cupboard that looked as if it was part of the kitchen (very European).
The tired carpet in the main areas were replaced with stunning marble tiles giving not only luxury to this apartment but also that wonderful sense of space and light it so needed.
A fresh paint and some new light fittings and this apartment is now the taste of luxury the owners so desired.
