The Buchanan School: 529 sqft in Capitol Hill

Interiors designed by Veronica Revilla

 

When faced with the challenge of designing a very small space with high ceilings, the right scale and proportions were critical to achieve a successful design. Every corner was carefully planned to make the best use of space and create an unobstructed flow.  A custom dining banquette and a carefully curated selection of pieces from contemporary Scandinavian brands came together to create a bright, minimal space that feels larger than 529 sqft.

Shapes

Circular shapes appear in different ways throughout the space as a motif that ties the design together.

Materials

The texture of the brick walls and oak floors is contrasted with soft fabrics and flat surfaces to create visual interest.

Colors

Pieces of furniture in a neutral, cool palette create a monochromatic look that makes the space feel larger.
