Located in one of the more popular postcodes in Nigeria, this private home in Abuja was very fun yet challenging to transform, given the client’s numerous requests and space limitation. With our team of designers, architects and carpenters, we managed to pull it off and gained another satisfied client.
The owner wanted an indoor gym & wellness area added on the ground floor. We successfully added one by placing wall partitions in a quarter of the cavernous living room area, and then installing Gazzotti wooden flooring.
With the size of the living area decreased, we then proceeded to transform it into a more intimate and elegant space. We furnished it with seating from Naustro and coffee and side tables from Cattelan Italia. To bring the ceiling down by a few inches, we installed a sophisticated chandelier with Swarovski crystals hanging down. Recessed bulbs and downlights complete the lighting solution.
The client also wanted a state-of-the-art cinema, hooked up to the latest electronics and technology. To keep the interior design as clean and minimalistic as possible, speakers were hidden, and the wide-screen TV kept behind a retractable wall panel. Control to the multi-media devices are through the multi-channel digital audio and control feeds.
We also added another bathroom on the ground floor, with access from the gym. It is partly covered in marble, while the rest is in mosaic tiles.
For the choice of furnishings in other areas of the house, the client selected a number of pieces from B&B Letti, Idea, Logo and Cattelan Italia, all of which are known as reputable and highly recommended brands.
