This refurbishment and extension project in Hackney, adds a new kitchen, WC and sunken bath to an existing ground floor apartment. The project references early 20th century concrete installations and Japanese theories on aesthetics and materiality. The client requested a bath specifically designed for relaxation and warming which follows the principles of ritual bathing. The kitchen includes a bespoke copper worktop and backsplash, designed to develop a patina over time.

The new external wall features glazed openings into the garden. Larch slats provide privacy without compromising light or views out of the property. The garden continues to reference Japanese aesthetics with granite gravel, polished concrete and bamboo. The larch slats will weather to a silver grey over time.
