Corridors to Corners
Whitehall Park, London
Planning Permission Granted
Due For Completion
Expressing the Thai-English cultural heritage of the owners, the project transforms a run-down apartment into a vibrant live-work space, transporting an essence of the orient to London. New storage walls, internal windows and lighting installations reconfigure a disconnected hall, stairs, landing and mezzanine into a sequence of interconnected spaces.
Nine antique glass lamps from Thailand hang at different heights across the space, creating a suspended landscape of coloured lights. Echoing the folding timber screens of the owner’s childhood home in Bangkok, a flexible storage wall concertinas open and closed, creating an internal window framing views across the apartment.
