Since the mid-nineties much gentrification has occurred within Shoreditch, however the urban fabric remains gritty.
The bedroom is within an aged and distressed building fabric with a mixture of newer, more luxurious artefacts. The walls, floor and ceiling reflect something about the urban condition, whilst the loose furnishings offer comfort.
- Raw plaster walls and a painted concrete ceiling create the room shell
- A semi-circular glass shower creates a focus in the bedroom
- The built-in 2m x 2m bed is constructed from old reclaimed floorboards
- There is a long desk for work, and a purposely-distressed carpet underfoot
- A screen-printed artwork shutter slides into place to cover the window
- Carefully collaged loose furnishings suggest a quirky juxtaposition with the distressed aesthetic
- The result is a room that has a story – it feels authentic and personal
