This apartment project is about 2,000 square feet. The building was constructed in the 70's which means the efficiency of the actual square footage is quite high. The client is a young couple who appreciates clean lines and simplicity; durability of sound materials and their relative ease of maintenance. The previous owner had a dropped ceiling, which was the first things we decided to take out. The client also wanted to maximize the floor to ceiling dimension, so after taking out the dropped ceiling, we actually spent a good 3-4 days cleaning up the underside of the concrete slab with a stainless steel brush. We were able to see construction calculation notations and imperfections on the concrete surface, which are left exposed. These imperfections were played off in contrast with the clean and smooth white walls and panelling.
