The 32,5 sqm boutique combines two rooms together across in graphics and material frames, giving different perspective when viewed from any edge. As a cost-effective and environmentally responsive project, making use of various scrap materials was ideal for designing and cladding optical interior surfaces for a pleasing ambience.

For the project, materials were chosen in a palette of contrasting tones: waste clay roof tiles, waste beer bottles, damaged flooring tiles, recycled window shutters, unused sample tiles, waste metal rings and mirror clad. At the same time, the quality of these materials provides longevity with aesthetics.
