The brief, to provide accommodation for visiting musicians using the neighbouring recording studio, was enriched with the request to embody the history of the studio’s past in the proposed design.
Designed as a set of unique apartments connected by a common language, the scheme took elements of the period architecture and re-imagined them in the spirit of the four chosen record labels – Island Records, Stiff Records, ZTT and Sarm.
Album covers from each label were taken as the inspiration behind the colour scheme and fixtures used in each apartment.
