Absolute Project Management were asked to redesign the layout and decoration throughout this four bedroom terraced house in Leytonstone
The process was initiated with a feasibility study as the couple had already engaged architects. This allowed Absolute to compile various layout options that best suited both the planned structural alterations and the client’s design brief.
The open plan layout was created by opening up between the dining room and kitchen, improving the flow of natural light and making access to the garden a feature of the space. Green paint makes a bold and cheerful statement in the kitchen, enhanced with brass detailing and graphic, monochrome tiles. Absolute reworked an existing exterior building to create a utility separate to the main space, this was key to the client as they needed to store amenities for their dog Pongo.
Wood flooring runs through the downstairs rooms providing a sense of cohesion, but in the dining end of the open plan space cupboards are painted blush pink as a soft contrast to the vibrant green kitchen.
Colour returns in the living room with red walls providing a warm backdrop to an eclectic mix of furniture, books and personal possessions.
On the second floor, Absolute worked with the clients to re-design the layout of the en-suite, opening up the space, but incorporating some of the existing fittings to control costs. Replacing the shower with a corner enclosure better-suited the space and the addition of feature Zellige tiles on the floor and on the shower wall add life to room.
Works in the main bedroom included a bespoke wardrobe to fill the ceiling angle, maximising use of the space and creating much needed storage.
Throughout each stage of the works, Absolute considered how best to utilise the existing rooms, furnishings and fittings to make the project more sustainable. The renovation has made the home more cohesive and a better space to be in for the clients and their lifestyle – not least their dog.
