Covenants, lease restrictions and planning regulations often present challenges to a design scheme. At Zachary Pulman Design Studio these are seen as opportunities for innovative design solutions. Our work on this 1940’s apartment in London Fields is a great example of this.
Lease provisions prevented the owner from using concealed pipe work within the property. Subsequently, the design team used burnished and industrial qualities of materials often hidden, to their advantage. Copper pipe work throughout gave a gritty, sexy aesthetic. Exposed brick walls, warm tonal woods, stone and marble counters and clever bespoke pieces were used for utility and storage.
Restructuring of the internal space by removing the underside of the stairs, transformed the kitchen into a useable space for eating and entertaining. Stark white cabinetry, cowhide dining chairs, heavily veined marble and a custom fluorescent light fixture were chosen as focal features.
