James and Kate contacted me to help refresh their ground floor London home. The living room is a long rectangle in two distinct areas. The upper end with a sofa, TV, media area and great built in bookshelf. But the lower end of the room, overlooking the garden, did not have a sense of purpose or function as all of the family activity, reading, listening to music, TV watching took place in the top end. Time to review, zone and balance all the space, to define flexibility and function.
