// The Scandi-Industrial  Apartment

Scandi-industrial style is a blend of two styles: Scandinavian design and industrial design.

Scandinavian design is best known for warmth, functionality, clean lines and simple elegance. Think of elements of natural, simple minimalism, neutral tones, and white walls. Industrial design style  is also known as ‘ the warehouse look’. Taking its inspiration from old factories turned into loft dwellings. This style mixes textures like wood, metal and concrete and keeping the ‘unfinished look’.

The blending of these two styles resulted in a whole new style called ‘Scandi-industrial’. These styles work so well together because they have some common threads – neutral tones, mixing texture and functionality. These styles appreciate the beauty of natural and raw materials without a lot of ornamental detail.

When it comes to blending styles in one room – you need to have a dominant style and then a supporting style.  A 50/50 mix will look and feel confused.  Because these two styles have some common threads, they are quite easy to mix together.  An example of mixing these style is to have a Scandinavian style as the dominant (furniture for instance) with white walls or a brick wall painted in white and add some industrial lighting.

When you mix these two styles together – you get a truly unique look !

FASHION BNKR – THE OFFICE

The office workspaces are open plan encouraging networking and collaboration. Partition walls between areas can be closed off to create new meeting spaces. This also helps to reduce energy consumption by only using services that are required as required. The space is broken up into zones that can be closed off to minimise energy consumption. There are three types of lighting – general, task and ambient lighting. All workstations have a combination of the three so they can be used as needed.

Breakout pods offer employees the opportunity to rest and re-charge their batteries. Taking a minimal space it allows for a moment of quiet contemplation in the hectic day. Making them more affective in return.

The central point in the office area is the ‘Think Tank, it is designed to create a WOW factor for visitors and clients and also be the gathering point for idea generation. Set literally in the centre of the office it’s the showcase location of the space with all activity happening in and around it.

The feel in here is modern and fresh with a statement pendant and mint designer chairs. This is a room that is comfortable to be in when generating fresh ideas as well as business. A room for both business and leisure.

OAK APARTMENT -KITCHEN & DINING DESIGN

The design of the contemporary modern kitchen tends to be minimalist and geometric. Features include horizontal lines, asymmetry and a lack of forms and other ornaments. Ingredients and materials are often artificial as natural: stainless steel, laminate, frosted glass, concrete, linoleum, chrome and lacquer. The contemporary styles around the 1940s to the present day by Europe, especially in Italy, Germany and Scandinavia go ahead. Traditional kitchens are elegant and formal look and describe the typical American and European homes of the 18th, 19th and early 20th century.

Cabinetry made of elegant cherry, walnut and mahogany, as well as antique accessories and modern kitchen appliances can assist with the integration of both – traditional and contemporary styles. The eclectic nature of materials both natural and artificial can be used to emphasize the modernity rather than a transitional style. You can play with the lighting and the colour scheme in the room to set the tone for the aesthetic of the room. Open shelving with bespoke crockery and beautiful kitchen appliances should be flaunted, instead of hidden behind these panels.

Whatever your aesthetic or taste we can help you find a happy median in your home. The oak apartment is a careful integration of these ideas delicately balanced into a cohesive space.
