Minimalist and modern with just a touch of the classics is what the family home in Victoria Islands, Lagos, Nigeria was all about. The refurbishment project turned out to be huge and challenging, given the amount of improvements and renovations that needed to be done. But with an army of designers and workers, we successfully completed the project and made another client happy.

One of the areas that needed the most work was the living room. The client wanted it to be the media room at the same time, requiring custom designed interior and the right furniture pieces. The first thing we did was add the electrical wiring needed to power up all electronics and set it up on one side of the room. This way, all media devices were placed in one area, while the furniture pieces were spread out in other parts of the room.

So right across the state-of-the-art home theatre was the seating and coffee and side tables from Naustro and Aria. Before any of the furnishings were set up, we laid down the Gazzotti wooden flooring and then placed a layer of plush carpet on top.

Once the living room and entertainment centre was completed, we then moved on to work on the kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. The clients chose pieces from some of the best brands – Logo wardrobes, GeD kitchen, Gaggenau appliances, Idea bathroom cabinets and B&B Letti beds.

Our last mission was to create a complete intelligent home concept with remote controlled security, curtains, lighting and blinds.
