Eleglantly Simplistic

Knowles worked as Principal Contractor for the Client and The Dhaus Company to overhaul the premises of the Bull and Last pub, renovating the original pub, adding boutique hotel rooms and for a truly unique touch, but as well as this, the addition of two Japanese-inspired duplex apartments located next to the iconic gourmet hot-spot.

A custom-made feature screen was installed to the apartment’s public facade and private courtyard area, a detail which was also incorporated into the pubs refurbishment. 

The powder-coated, one-piece aluminum optical feature was based on an original brick composition and sat directly in front on the glass windows to provide privacy, as well as a truly unique feature. The road facing wall was required to be black, for planning purposes, whilst the courtyard screens were white to provide a light and open space.

Internally, high specification finishes were delivered with elegant simplicity and a combination of modern and textured surfaces.
