A BUNGALOW INTERIOR FIT OUT
We had a chance to do an interior fit out for a 36 square meters one bedroom bungalow model house of a real-estate company. The house is located somewhere in Cavite area. The idea was that there should be no movement in the house itself; no changing of floor, window or doors; no changing of finishes including toilet fixtures and kitchen counter; no movement in the ceiling; and no built-in cabinets should be fabricated. All furnishing should be only be bought outside and be placed in inside as if we are just ordinary people owning the place. First we made a story line because we have to make an imaginary owner so as a guide on what shall we do. Second, concept and last, initial design of the interior.
Background Story Line:
- Newly-wed couple
- Late twenties to early thirties
- Husband: Dentist
- Wife: Housewife
- Loves to bake
- Children: No children yet
Design Concept: “Retro-Modern Interiors”
A retro-modern interior fits the character of the newly wed couple. A functional yet funky modern interior washed in white and accented with colors best fit the husband’s medical background and the wife’s culinary hobby. A sleek and streamlined design is well suited to a newly wed couple’s simple living on their way to building a family of their own. A Retro-modern interior is characterized by:
Clean lines, Functional, Utilitarian, Austere, Simplicity of design, Streamlined, Sleek, Subtle, Uncomplicated, Minimal ornamentation, Boxy, Abundance of Glass, Straight simple lines (linear), No moldings, White and subtle neutral colors, Open planning.
THE FINAL OUTCOME:
If I am not mistaken, we only spend around 200K Pesos more or less for this project. Tight schedule. Tight Budget. But it was fun.
