A lack of storage results in a home that quickly becomes cluttered; a problem experienced by many. At this stunning little garden flat in Notting Hill, space planning was critical. To blend the U shaped kitchen seamlessly across the room and into the open plan living, we designed a wall that incorporates the storage and function the family needs. Inset concrete panels allow texture and colour to transform the wall into a real focal point, whilst hand routed timber handles provide an element of simplicity and practicality. By incorporating the material palette already used throughout the home, the design blends in instinctively.
