Client: Tortuga Ltd/Liberty Living Plc
Status: Completed October 2007
The existing building had a rather sombre, institutional disposition so our aim here was to develop a strong sense of individuality. The injection of colour has created a more playful identity with bold blues and greens in the communal areas and complimentary chalky tones in the studios. Window frames and internal joinery have been replaced using bleached timber and the furniture compliments this.
This building provides 33 studios including accessible units and shared laundry facilities. The studios are fitted to the same high standard as the 1920s building.
