Sustainable refurbishment of a ground floor apartment in London. The project incorporates natural biodegradable strawboard for 90% of the fit out, English sycamore for flooring and joinery, british made sanitaryware and fittings and up-cycled materials for loose funiture. Simple ironmongery and joinery fabrication techniques were developed to reduce cost and facilitate future maintenance.
The agenda was to both experiment and test new materials but also to prove that specifying local suppliers and products can achieve not only good design but also help towards investing in local skills and manufacturing.
All fit out designed and built by Poroban
