The open-plan space of the apartment is divided into a living, kitchen, dining area and a bedroom by a central volume that houses the kitchen, shower room and wardrobes. A second bedroom occupies an annexed space to the rear of the property and divides the enclosed garden into two connected courtyard spaces.
The continuity of the epoxy floor and the mirrored splashback to the kitchen enhances the sense of a continuous single open-plan space. The extensively mirrored interior of the shower room that occupies the interior of the central volume, creates an uncanny sense of spatial expansion where one expects compression.
The existing Victorian building is preserved unaltered as a found object, but the windows and doors removed and replaced with fixed and sliding glazing with concealed frames. This articulation gives the building a sense of incompleteness and vacancy. The interior reads as a contemporary re-inhabitation of this Victorian artefact.
