This was one of the most unusual briefs we’ve ever been given: our twenty-something client asked us to transform his high-rise apartment into what he described as ‘an Iron Man lair’! He wanted it to be a place to party, and also visible from across the city.
The existing interior was looking very tired, so we completely updated it. We incorporated the balcony into the interior to make the living room larger; we also created a gaming-room with a large photographic wall mural of the view from the apartment at night, taken by one of our team. And for that authentic Marvel Comics touch, we designed and manufactured a custom-made bed, which appears to float off the floor.
To enable the client to see his pad from afar, we specified a colour-changing lighting design and new, larger windows. At one point, the window suppliers feared they’d have to abseil down the building to install them: all very super-hero, but fortunately they found another way!
