  • it's got a very high ceiling so we've really seen the design as

  • Inserting a little hybrid pod with a mezzanine loft bedroom over the top

  • Which freed up the rest of the space to make it feel a lot more spacious.

  • The history of this building is it's a Victorian era building

  • It has four shops and seven apartments.

  • This happens to be the residual one at the end

  • Which is underneath the hip and it's about 40m2 in size.

  • What we've really done is expressed the ceilings and the Trust's within the

  • design by inserting a little pod with hybrid spaces that incorporating all

  • the dining room, the kitchen and the services and even the bathroom

  • The kitchen for instance being loaded off a

  • hallway, rather than being its own space

  • We've gone for 1/2 module dishwasher and we've gone for 1/2 module sink

  • and kept everything sort of compact in that but still got plenty of bench space there and

  • decent-sized pantry and the little hidden appliance cabinet which you know

  • creates quite a functional chef's kitchen as we would describe it

  • Within that very confined space and ceiling area we've had to use an unconventional Japanese stair - to get up there and

  • It was so tight that we actually ended up putting a 10mm plate steel landing in the staircase

  • which actually formulates the ceiling of the shower in the bathroom

  • We've incorporated a dining facility into that which can be used as a

  • study during the day and has multi functions in that aspect

  • We've got beautiful sunlight northern orientation in the living area

  • which makes it feel big and spacious while the other functions are extremely tightly designed

  • it feels overall like it big comfortable space to be in and

  • I imagine you can have a party here with 30 or 40 people and it would still feel like a decent sort of space.
