" RUBIC-CUBE " SOLUTION...

Today's inspiration: genius  design proposal  for the apartment at Bow Quarters ( Fairfield Road, London, England ) designed by STUDIO VERVE ARCHITECTS.



Bow Quarters is a beautiful seven-acre Grade-II listed residential development set within a historic site of the converted Bryant and May matchbox factory. The site is separated from the Olympic Park by the Black wall Tunnel.



Studio Verve was shortlisted and invited to provide design proposals for the conversion of one of the mezzanine apartments into a two-bedroom flat.



The proposal required ingenious almost ‘Rubik-cube like’ solutions to meet the ambitious programmatic brief of the client whilst responding to the challenging structural constraints. 



Two vastly different design approaches were worked through and presented; each providing dramatic spatial experience within the walls and high industrial windows of the original factory.



Studio Verve was selected to work through one of the schemes and have just completed the project on site. The entire interiors including the existing mezzanine structure was completely gutted; and reinserted with a new mezzanine structure to take advantage of the high volume industrial space.



A feature Ipe timber fin wall bisects the volume; with an Oak stairs leading one up to the mezzanine bedroom with a frameless glass balustrade overlooking the dramatic double-height lounge and dining space below.




Concealed door is created within the fin wall- that leads into the ground floor bedroom, bathroom and media/storage utility. A full-height bookshelf separates the cloak cabinet space and kitchen from the main lounge looking onto the original high industrial window.
