The joiners were out in force at the Brussels apartment to install wardrobe, bookcase, desk, cupboard, bed head and sliding bathroom doors. So I can't yet show you the apartment clean and tidy :o(.
I blogged about the designs on 2nd November. (Remember to click on 'label' to have all the entries related to this project listed together.)
A little bit about the design: all of the cupboards are in lacquered grey-white, with the doors in walnut. The idea was that the darker walnut panels balance the light oak floor and provide spaces of calm (for the eyes) next to the very structural flint stone walls. The cupboards are designed to display and store. So all of them have doors only partially covering its contents. Oh, and the final design feature is that I worked with are horizontal bands of white to visually divide the cupboards up.
The bookcase 'coming down the stairs'.
This photo shows the stairs down into the apartment, with on the left the bookcase and on the right the wardrobe in L-shape (the half-height wall is the lower part of the wardrobe). It is accessible from three sides.
The photo is too much close-up, it doesn't show how the stairs open up into the flat.
The other side of the wardrobe. The top part is for duvets and suitcases.
The walnut sliding doors to the bathroom. In open position, they hide the washing machine and dryer.
Clients told me they love their new bathroom 'I want to move into it and not come out again'(!).
As soon as the 'all clear' is given, I will hop on the train to take proper pictures to substantiate the claims I have made in this blog.
