MINI CASA INTERIORS
This bedroom was designed for a mature, ten year old boy. After completing the MINI CASA client questionnaire with the child and his parents, I was able to get to know his personality and understand the functional requirements for the space. The boy has a spirit of adventure and a strong interest in marine life which directed the theme and colour palette. Functionally, it was important to create a space for him to study, sleep and relax with friends. As the parents intend for this room design to serve their child until he leaves home, it was important to select a timeless colour palette and quality pieces of furniture that the boy can grow into.
The project was the result of a highly collaborative design process between the client and architect. This collaboration led to a design outcome which prioritised light, expanding volumes and increasing connectivity both within the home and out to the garden. Within the complex original plan, rational solutions were found to make sense of late twentieth century extensions and underutilised spaces. Compartmentalised spaces have been reprogrammed to allow for generous open plan living. A series of internal voids were used to promote social connection across and between floors, while introducing new light into the depths of the home.
