Tex-Tonix House 1 With Oak Architecture
The London based studio Paul Mcaneary Architects is responsible for completing the Tex-Tonic House 1 project. This project was completed in 2010, with the apartment located on the top floor of the existing Central London post office and Phillips de Pury art action house in Victoria, London.
The idea of the project was to design two apartments on the top floor with a contemporary design and functionality. Included in the apartments are “three bedroom boxes within the large double height loft space, to provide rooms for sleeping accommodation: additional to the master bedroom and two further bedrooms, they accommodate for the master bedroom walk-in wardrobe, en-suite bathroom and a shared bathroom”. The living area “is spacious and serves multi-purpose events”.
The architecture of the apartment is mainly made up of mixed timbers with an emphasis on their texture and their character. Oak Beams are used throughout to give the apartment a natural yet modern feel. The oak theme is also continued in the floor, as oak flooring is used in the apartment. This emphasises the natural yet modern feel that the apartment portrays, as well as looking great against the natural light which floods through the large skylights.
