Transform your Condominium Unit in 60 days

7/12/2019

After 7 months for online communication, we have actually locked-in on what the client wants base on the overall factors he had considered and everything in between and this project to implement the design was done for a very limited time of 2 months to construct. The color scheme of this project was supposed to be red, white and black and on the last minute upon seeing this look we have to take out the red accent materials using a graphic kote from Kima Glass.  Hence, the project turned out well wherein the crucial time was on the project management to meet the deadline and possible extensions.











The concept of this project was Modern, with all the clean lines and neutral color to be used it's definitely modern. This studio unit is a 30 sqm area with limited space to cover all the requirements the client wanted. A huge kitchen with lots of storage and multi-functional space that should all go together with their requirements such as the dining area, writing desk, a media wall and wardrobe, and storage, to put this all together was a bit easier when things base on cost were considered after designing.



The look upon entering this almost all-white studio unit. We added laminated floors from Design Source Inc. placed on top of the floor, which material was from Brazil. The extended main kitchen and the stretched out kitchen pantry seen on the other side was definitely their top priority. The kitchen appliances and kitchen storage came from Hafele which we both enjoyed when sourcing things to make their space functional and modern. 


This is the kitchen pantry aligned to the main kitchen using synthetic solid surface, which is my recommended material. The media area also served as a dining area and a writing desk as it also uses a synthetic countertop to match its high-gloss melamine boards and pure white paints from Boysen. 





The mirror was already here when we started designing as this was done by this previous contractor, we just retained and work around what we can do. As you have noticed, this has a yellowish color because we used tri-color lights and 2 cove lights both in warm white and daylight, giving him options on what they like best. The styling wasn't done as requested by the client since their items will be brought the following day. Speaking of a crucial turn-over.




 Here is the look infront of the mirror with me, taking photos before I leave. On the right side is the sliding wardrobe, located behind the kitchen. This is connected to each other including on its beams.  Speaking of Smart Home, we only applied what was practical, no alexa just remote and switches that eases everything and a mechanism that organizes your stuff.

The family of 3 arrived the following day bringing all their belongs from their apartment and in no time as per my visit late in the afternoon,  every door cabinet was filled with their things and a little left for new ones. We were able to pull that of in 60 days, the floors, the cabinetry works and general construction works. It was so little time with a big scope of works. It was a bit stressfull as,  time becomes your competition to keep on track of the schedule despite having set-backs it was all worth it seeing your design becoming a reality.

Oh! Btw, I had fun taking photos on this project since it would be my first time to use my Fujifilm Camera for my projects. Speaking of my childhood hobby.
