East meets west a celebration of two diverse cultures, this was the starting point. The Japanese love for beauty and simplicity was the inspiration to work with clean linear lines. Cafe bar influence was used to inject warmth and sociability through the use of colour and pattern.
The brief was to maintain and conserve the existing structure and a new extension was added to house the spaces for kitchen/living and main bedroom. The house is enlivened by the large contrast between the old and new. The old being smaller intimate spaces ideal for reading or dining whilst the new is large, practical and contemporary.
