Convivial living with an intimate twist, this cleverly conceived studio is designed to maximise space and light.
Clean lines, floor-to-ceiling windows and crisp white walls: this well-arranged studio lives up to its photogenic past. Once used as a location for photoshoots, the space has been reimagined as part of a boutique development by interior designer Tala Fustok who has imbued the building with a simple aesthetic.
Simplicity lends a touch of tranquillity that lets statement details do the talking. Standing in dramatic contrast to the monochrome backdrop, there’s a black Häcker kitchen kitted out with everything the keenest cook could need to whip up a culinary triumph. A mirrored splashback reflects the dining area to create the illusion of depth and open up the room even further.
When it’s time to feast, pull up one of the sculptural dining chairs or perch on the built-in bench. Or if unwinding is top of the agenda, sink into the corduroy sofa with a glass of something chilled.
When it’s time to retreat to bed, it’s a short step up to the sleeping zone, where fluid, pure white curtains can be drawn to cocoon the space, separating it completely from the rest of the living area. Come morning, peel back the reams of fabric to survey the quiet courtyard outside through the floor-to-ceiling windows, or eye up the Nespresso machine, before diving back under the duvet, coffee in hand. The sage green Solus tiles in the bathroom next door provide a refreshing pick-me-up to complement the black and white theme. Relaxation is assured thanks to the large rainfall shower positioned over an inviting bathtub.
