Day 363: Once a Small Apartment…

“Nook Architects found the two apartments in a poor state, with several adaptations over the years leaving them with a confused layout of compartmentalised rooms and very little natural light. Layers of false ceilings, flooring and dividing walls were removed and the entrances were relocated to give the apartments a similar size and layout. Each apartment is organised into a day zone oriented towards the street and a night zone towards the quieter rear facade.”

Day 361: Parkas and Hoods

“The illusion of giant cable knits was created by prints on sportswear fabric in Westminster student Philli Wood’s BA fashion collection. Wood chose to print black knitwear patterns onto pink and orange performance nylons instead of knitting the pieces. “I liked the idea of something looking like knit from afar but in fact being something completely different,” he told Dezeen. Three dimensional cables on a round jacket and a separate chunky scarf appeared to be inflated. The wool patterns were also printed onto silk dresses and tights in the same colours. Parkas of various lengths with wide-brimmed hoods were lined with orange nylon to reference the traditional anoraks.”

Day 360: A Very Big House in the Country

“Beautifully restored the building reminds you of an English countryside described in a Charlotte Brontë novel. Manicured lawns, a gravel drive and flora and fauna highlighting the Regency Country House – there’s an air of fabulous from the outset. Instantly comfortable and impressed, I began to feel very English – so start with a glass of Gusbourne BdB 2008, a refreshing sparkling wine from Kent that befitted the light yet sophisticated interiors of the naturally lit Courtyard Bar. Scanning the drinks menu was fun, spotting libations that tickled my fancy such as the gin and tonic with balsamic vinegar and rosemary – savoury is just how I like them.”
