This compact open plan apartment in Oxfordshire has been designed to create a feeling of space and light, despite its diminutive size.
An attic conversion for a HMO student bedroom. When we were working with the client it was clear that orange was a favourite colour so we used this as the starting point for our design.
This rental apartment was a great space but with bland magnolia walls (that couldn't be painted) and a cream carpet, it made the place feel dull and lifeless. Our client was relocating and wanted us to create a warm, welcoming home with an identity - one where he could relax and entertain after a hard day at work.
Our client asked us to add personality to the space so that it didn't look like a bland new extension.
The brief? To refurbish a tired second living room in a Victorian town house to provide a smart, stylish bedroom that our client could use for airbnb, but that would also double up and provide her son at university with a holiday bolt hole.
We designed this practical open plan kitchen living space with a strong colour scheme and style to ensure our client's HMO investment stood out in a competitive rental market. The multi functional space was kitted out with hard wearing, practical furniture and designed to provide plenty of storage as well as space to chill out as well as eat meals.
