The cube project formed part for the Frost & Nicholls renovation project.
Our brief was to incorporate an office space that was functional but maximized the footprint on offer with existing rooms removed. The room has no direct natural light via any windows only by door entry. The room required power sources, heating and drainage alterations. A functional office desk with storage and shelving for files. Additional entry into a concealed utility room. Oh and did I mention had to be seamless with no angular edges if possible and be in sympathy with the modern dwelling and the original architects feel!
The glazed door solved the light issues leading to the choice of white covering for all the surfaces offering a reflective surface and additional brightness. Thinking outside the box regarding floor-wall-ceiling coverings led to visions in perspex, colored glass and various sheet vinyls to offer that seamless wrap. We went with a studded tile but to get the pure bright white we had to go with a non-oil based type to offer pure brilliant white sourced from Ireland.
Professional drainage advice was sought prior to commencing the project. With the drainage in place, new 17th edition electrics and new plumbing the office was ready to be wrapped. Standard coving was applied to the four main floor/ceiling sections then inset with 6mm ply before the tiles were adhered to the base surfaces. With the room fully wrapped we were ready to install the white down lighters and white vertical radiator.
With the floating shelving in place it was left down to sourcing the desk, a hidden utility door latch and a Herman Miller chair.
