Proctor and Shaw has designed the Shoji Apartment in London, United Kingdom.

This project was a study in materiality, transparency and enclosure, conceived as a prototype for micro-living in existing housing stock characterised by a constrained footprint but traditionally generous ceiling heights.

Poky and uncomfortable cellular rooms are replaced by a generous multi-functional living space arranged around a translucent sleeping pod, influenced by Japanese Shoji screens.

By cleverly stacking accommodation in a single height volume, additional floor space is conjured by designers Proctor and Shaw to provide a real sense of luxury and design quality, just 29sqm in area.

This project has been longlisted in the apartment interior category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
