Sigma Construction UK was appointed to renovate and add a contemporary feel to this two-bedroom flat, within a three storey maisonette bought by a couple of professionals.
Built at the beginning of the twentieth century, the property is located in the fashionable district of Hackney, London E8.
Flat Renovation London
The flat renovation entirely transformed the ground floor property, as seen in the “before” and “after” photos, where it is immediately apparent that the previous use of the space was very inefficient, as opposed to the new open-plan.
The new design has given the Hackney flat a stylish feel and look, and what is more, the space has been used to its best advantage.
Property Renovation London
The property renovation included a complete strip-out and demolition. A new open-plan layout was created by removing a bearing wall located between the kitchen and living room, and installing a steel beam sitting on columns to support the floors above, followed by plastering walls and ceilings, installation of new central heating system and modern radiators in the bedrooms.
No property renovation is complete without re-wiring the power points and lights: Sigma’s electricians took great care of both, and as seen in the photos vintage pendants have been placed within the rooms to add a decorative feel.
The internal layout alternation seen in this
This was achieved by using a metal Crittall screen with Georgian opaque wired-glass integrated within the panel—this application of a panel creates an element of seclusion, but without entirely closing off the space.
The welded Crittall pantry doors were painted black and installed within the inner chimney breast opening, offering a creative way to store wine in style.
The open-plan kitchen has a very contemporary and light feel: the use of white units combined with the ivory stone worktop complement the rest of the decor whilst still being practical, owing to ample storage and a well-thought-out use of the space.
French-style, fluted glass shades were suspended from the kitchen ceiling; the black cord added a contrast whilst complementing the black pantry doors.
Together they added a bold, yet not overpowering variation to the rest of the light-coloured kitchen.
Sigma Construction UK aimed to create a practical bedroom design whilst still keeping it up-to-date. In order to afford the best use of space within this property renovation, we had custom-built wardrobes designed and fitted by our own carpenters. The high ceilings permitted a 3.4m high floor-to-ceiling wardrobe, a great solution for anyone looking to maximise their storage area whilst still keeping the bedroom looking clean and uncluttered.
The wardrobe, as seen in the photo, is minimalist and sleek. The mirrored panel placed in the centre of the wardrobe adds a nice contemporary touch, but is also eminently practical. The internal lighting within the wardrobe adds a modern and practical element to the overall design.
The bathroom design was kept simple by Italian Terrazo floor slabs and a drop of colour in the grouting, but also with the cast-iron bath. The use of a light colour palette makes the space appear pleasingly large
The living area is where the most colour was used. The focal colour in this scheme was red,which complemented the restored wooden flooring and oak furniture In order to create balance, other colours were subtly introduced, as seen in the carpet and paintings above the fireplace.
One of the great assets of this London Property are the large sash windows, which let plenty of natural light. Our builders restored and repaired the windows, and installed security locks for the clients’ piece of mind.
