We carried out the design for all the common areas and the Foyer of the Durrels Housem an apartment block of 80 flats in West Kensington. The project also entailed the retro fitting of the single independent heatings by introducing a communal system which are going to be more efficent in terms of energy (and carbon) consumption and therefore more sustainable. Also the gas has been completely removed from the building Flair Studio worked on the interior architecture and the coordination of the pool of consultants.
The design narrative aimed at amplifying the shape of the building bolck, which is composed by two slightly offset rectangles. We played on the building shape to develop a pattern tbat we used at tbe floor, with bespoke, thinner grey tiles punctuated with lighter, larger tiles. The lighting scheme echoes the flooring in a more diluted yet graphical way while the bespoke screen, the lift wall and the reception desk have a thinner pattern of repeated solid wood profiles.
