School, hospital, home. The bricks and mortar of this building, which now houses modern apartments, once saw kids lope and doctors stride down the valuted-ceiling corridors. Stripped back and reinterpreted, the architectural features like the white-washed oak flooring and creamy walls presented a blank canvas for us.
To ensure that the light and airy appeal was retained, we injected subtle pops of colour – pulled directly from nature’s palette. In the open-plan living space, inspiration was drawn from sand dunes and blue skies. The whole scheme is grounded through black elements – like the rope lights and dining table frame.
