APARTMENT AT ST MARTIN'S
The Apartment at St Martin’s Place was built in the late 1960s.
The basic form of the apartment unit determined the planning of the new spaces within.
Existing walls were kept intact, keeping its structural intent untouched.
The stunning views of tropical rain trees from the apartment were maximised
and framed with window openings.
Planning was deliberately made simple.
Walls became extension of rooms.
This became the genesis of design; space was designed to flow from one room to another.
Windows and doors then became passages for space to flow through.
This enhanced the cross-ventilation effects of tropical living.
Detailed space planning therefore made the small apartment look remarkably spacious.
The design played with the use of light, creating shadows to give depth to the rooms.
The soft glow of the morning and evening light was enhanced with mood lighting,
creating special effects for relaxation and congenial living.
