The design brief was a one-line request – to create a Modern, Brutalist ‘concrete bunker’.

The Perfect Storm apartment involved a complex series of custom build processes and bespoke fabricated elements, resulting in a one of a kind, loft style apartment. The build works carried out included the complete gutting and renovation of an existing ground-floor apartment, including the following;

  • Demolition of existing kitchen and removal of all existing fixtures, fittings & joinery to bathroom and the stripping back to stud of the upstairs mezzanine level

  • Custom fabrication and installation of ‘invisible’ curved plaster cornice to double-height ceiling designed to give a seamless transition between walls & ceiling.

  • Creation of ‘hidden’ storage units throughout including the restructuring of the staircase to accommodate under-stair storage, concealed behind joinery

  • Unique application of a concrete-style render (X-Bond) finish to bathroom and laundry

  • Custom fabrication and install of dual-cantilevered concrete tv unit, a dimmable ‘neon-look’, double string, LED ‘Halo’ light

  • Design & construction of steel shower screen featuring ‘arched’ doorway

    and concealed magnet handle.
