Interiors are like onions. They have layers. This has always been the case — you start with bare bricks and concrete, and build it up from there.

Like a foundation garment, base level layering may not be immediately apparent. It’s doing its job by holding everything together underneath. Exceptions include exposed bricks and pipe work, which is always a bit saucy. The past few years have seen a move towards a more conscious approach to layering that ranges from an awareness of practicalities like insulation and acoustics, to exploring the aesthetic potential of cosy curtains.
