Gallery - some of my bigger projects
Turning 500m2 of jungle into a garden where you can see your feet again. Taking the work under the summer sun as a bonus
Who doesn't love a big window sill to give a nice feel to your living room; a style that reminds us of those charming old buildings, a space to decorate or a cosy corner to pause in while watching the world go by outside. And if you don't have one.....well then it's time to call someone who can help you with this made-to-measure project.
Taking some original vintage lamps, new connections and retro cables and combining them with an old fruit tree ladder found in a barn - there goes your new dining room lighting out of the ordinary.
Just in time for the return of spring this terrace shines in a new light and is ready for cosy, warm summer evenings, BBQs and lots of family fun.
Color-blocking has recently spilled over into home décor and interior design. This trend takes the same idea in home design that is does in fashion: the colors are paired with no concern of matching. I quite like the choice of my client here, bringing some colour into their apartment. And..they do match :)
...and to make the picture even more perfect, we chose the same colour for a new door that needed to hide a closet in the entrance area
A great way to use up all space when your dresser
is under a slanted roof
A major renovation project of an entire flat reqired hard work, an eye for the details and most of all a lot of dust, paint and oil. After the aquisition of this apartment, it needed a complete make over before the new owner will move in. Satisfaction guaranteed.
wooden floor sanding - painting of walls, ceilings, heatings, window frames and plinths - cladding of damaged wall - small repairs
Giving the bathroom a touch of luxury and contemporary feel - this was my customers wish when I was asked to tile the wall with natural stone quartzite. Good choice - really love the look of it.
Customizing a lounge table to match the colour of the sofa - to be aligned with the company's colour coding I stripped down the original white and repainted in a shade closest to the fabric.
It was time for my customers' daughter to grow out of her kids room, and get something "cooler" for her teenage years - wall painting and Vintage refurbishment of the bed.
Using their cellar as a Gym room, so that employees can enjoy some sports in their lunch break or after business hours - this is what my customer wanted to do. However, the big shelves filled with confidential folders are neither motivating to watch, nor should they be accessible to everyone. A room in a room needed to be built...
After not being used in years, this beautiful atelier has now been bought by my customer who is planning on refurbishing it.
Sanding down 53m2 of wooden flooring drenched in thick paint was hard work - with a very satisfying result.
"I have looked everywhere for adjustable spot lights and I found this, but it doesn’t have any holes in the bottom to hang them. What do you think? Can you drill holes or should I keep looking?" There's no challenge I don't accept so I said "Don't worry I got this" and so I got to install this creative setting in a photopraphers' dark room :)
Collateral damage during a good party - Wall Repair and Plasterwork at a Bar in Zürich
Dottis Lovely Vintage and Labels in Zurich treated themselves to a little make over - during this improvement day I installed new changing rooms and a card rack for their special dotted flyers.
Bringing a stained unsealed wooden floor back to its beauty.
My customer moved in shortly before those stains happened and it would have been a shame not to treat it. Using a sanding machine and oil polish its now back to being a real gem.
An original mid-century coffee table that just waited for someone to take care of it.
Its top being completly stained I sanded and oiled it, and gave it a modern twist with a satin-matt black coating on legs and rim.
Installation of a new trellis on a customers terrace. All that's missing now is the plants twining around it.
Some kitchen improvement was requested here - using unused spaces - one of my favorites :)
Restoring and hanging a vintage lamp, adding shelves to a kitchen storage unit, putting a shelf up on the wall, picture hanging -
this was nearly my whole "Small fixes"- Portfolio at one customer.
Perfect use of an unused space behind the spare room door - a shoe shelf - Private customer, Zürich
New decoration for an office (guess who ). Installation of 30 aluminium plates, sized from A1 to double A0, using two different systems (metal rails and cords)
