With extensive experience and passion for all design Chris Connell incorporates custom product, lighting and furniture into many of his designs.
One of the designer’s impressive projects is the Brimar Court. The house floor plans were applied in accordance with the old building’s footprint but they were given an entirely new build that corresponds to refreshing architecture, interior design and landscaping.
The whole internal layout maintain the former layout’s intent, yet it puts greater emphasis on height, light and views out to the landscape. The living space was divided into two different areas that can be closed off at will. The private spaces, such as: bedroom, have more peaceful design that evokes a sense of seclusion making it even more private. The whole residence gives an impression of gallery-like building.
The Brimar Court project was one of the shortlisted candidates for the Single Residential category in Interior Design Excellent Awards (IDEA) 2012. To see more Chris Connell’s works visit his website!
