Peckham Dwelling

The renovation and alteration of an apartment within an Edwardian dwelling where Camberwell meets Peckham, the kitchen area was integrated with the sitting room to create a large open-plan living and dining area. The sleeping and bathroom spaces were extensively refurbished.

Set against the rear wall is a row of built in storage units. Concrete like, fibre-cement wall panels are bound by flowing birch work surfaces. Above the recessed ceramic sink, a deep shelf of birch timber conceals task lighting.

The simple palate of birch joinery, concrete like, fibre-cement wall panels and matt white finished built-in full storage, is appointed throughout the apartment, unifying the spaces. In order to keep cost to a minimum, much of the joinery and finishes were undertaken by the owner.

Dimmable lighting concealed within a partition frames the kitchen area, defined by a freestanding birch clad island worktop.
