Warple Way Studio flat

Warple Way Studio flat

This 1,100 square feet rough-lux unit was designed to reflect the heritage of a British-Albanian Londoner, Perparim Rama, and his American-Albanian wife, Kristalé Ivezaj Rama .

Their flat at Warple Way in London is on a well-known street of Acton recording studios, where Florence and the Machine, and even the late soul siren Amy Winehouse have previously recorded music.

Fitting then somewhat, that it is now where 4M, Mr Rama’s firm, have decided to turn up the volume on an open-plan lateral office space, and transform it into a work/live gallery, using unconventional materials such as micro-cement and powder-metal paint.

Through experimentation, 4M found revolutionary new material uses of microcement to create sculpted sinks, bath, and a kitchen, and wall areas were coated with powder metal paint sprayed with acid to achieve an oxidized appearance.

While most people would use white for a gallery, 4M displays multi-functionality in a rebellious yet skillfully blended composition.
