The penthouse fitout brief was to fill in a bland wall in the living area to create a useful piece of furniture. We also needed to work in with an existing piece of artwork. Judy also requested a Television area, fireplace and useful display and storage spaces. Additional flexible units were required for both work and storage in the bedroom and study.
Our solution was to incorporate an ethanol fireplace into the unit, being space-saving and requiring to chimney. We added a sliding door that moves across to reveal the television when needed, but when closed creates a fireplace effect. The right-hand side of the wall unit houses hidden storage as well as display sections. The left-hand side of the unit can also double as a work surface or display area.
The dining table was created in solid oak. To embrace the oriental pieces already there it was finished in Japan black,
With its bookcase like storage on either side and its central work area, the study wall unit creates a classic look.
The bedroom unit was carefully designed to be a multi-functional storage unit. It houses the television, which pops up when in use and hides away when not required. The drawers created storage, and the desk work area in this case also for Judy works as a sewing table.
