Previously known as EJ Werkshop Interiors, Enoch ID was established 10 years ago. The firm specialises in designing homes for expatriate clientele. Eddy believes that the key to a successful project is to be able to work closely with the clients in order to understand their needs and preferences, but also independently during the clientsʼ absence.

Four-bedroom condominium in
This apartment is home to an elderly couple in their 70s, who wanted warm and modern interiors. Eddyʼs design strategy was to use neutral shades such as beige and khaki as the dominant colours to set the mood for a cosy ambience.
A customised L-shaped sofa defines the living room space, while still maintaining a sense of connection with the adjacent dining room. The feature wall in the living room is a composition of Mondrian-inspired grids, with a mirrored finish set against a backdrop of leather with a stingray skin texture. This serves to give it a comfortable yet modern feel. Dark oak elements found in the coffee table, sofa legs and in the dining table and chair set from Le Mercier help to ground the entire scheme within the neutral palette and the white Volakas marble floor.
The use of mirrors over storage cabinets in the dining room creates the illusion of space. Building the cabinets all the way up to the ceiling makes good use of the vertical space, and the additional storage helps to keep the home clutter-free.
As the master bedroom is relatively small, Eddy designed a low-height headboard that extends from wall to wall. This has the effect of making the room appear wider than it actually is. The bay window doubles as a seating area within the room, and Eddy ingeniously made provisions for the flat screen television to slide in flushed with the wall-hung shelving, creating a sleek solution that minimises the intrusion into a limited space.
