Client: Tortuga Ltd/Liberty Living Plc
Status: Completed October 2007
Originally halls for the Royal College of Music, we were commissioned to refurbish a 1920s and a 1970s building and to create self contained studios.
Our re-design celebrates the original quality details, particularly the joinery. Staircases have been French polished, and sash windows and interior doors fully refurbished. Where original timber flooring was damaged, new boards have been laid diagonally to emphasise the intervention of the repair. Furniture has a dark wood finish, whilst all other internal decoration is a crisp white allowing the craftsmanship of the timber to stand out.
This building provides 35 studios including designated accessible units, laundry & common room facilities. Studios are fitted with modern, high quality, durable fixtures and have the latest communications access.
