Knox Vhavan Arhitects, a U.K.-based firm, transformed a former school into a two-story apartment fit for a family. Divided by double doors, the ground floor features white kitchen countertops and walls spotlighted by the wood tables in the kitchen and dining area. The high ceilings of this former Victorian school allow for an open breathing space with tons of exposed brick.
As Curbed writes:
Materials play an important role: in the main space at ground floor level, with raw, self-coloured materials, sand blasted stock brick, mirrored insulated walls and oak joinery. On the first floor and mezzanine the joinery is white, with vibrant green carpets, and walnut stairs. Although a big, dramatic, impressive space this apartment also holds secret and private places.
