Design Approach

  • At the initial stage, the purpose is to identify client needs by undertaking design\needs\problem analysis.
  • Following this, we develop concept and schematic designs, including drawings, to set the stage for the client's decision-making.
  • We then undertake the implementation of the project, working closely with clients and our partners.
  • Finally, we evaluate completed projects with clients for their feedback.

Design Style

TabernPlace was founded by London-based mum, Abi Laja, in 2017.  We create dynamic, but minimalistic schemes that enhance the health, well-being and individualistic lifestyle of clients.
TabernPlace incorporates natural elements and  sustainability into its designs.  The ambition is to meet the growing demand for interiors and products with dynamic colours, energy and originality.  We incorporate elements of tropical African culture, colours and patterns in some of our designs and products to give flavours and richness to interior spaces.
TabernPlace products are available to buy at TabernPlace Shop.

Our Latest Projects

Compact Kitchen Design

A compact kitchen design for easy living. This kitchen design is sleek and sustainable with a grey expression. The high glossy kitchen cabinets with the matching grey composite sink give the space a smart and sleek style.
The walnut worktop is a durable and sustainable option, and presenting a visual contrast to the glossy cabinets and wall tiles.  The grey scheme is dynamic - enhanced by using a mix of natural colours and materials. The angled cooker hood, wall shelves and wall decorations are additional accessories to further enhance the sleek and minimalistic design scheme.

The Greenbelt Maisonette

The maisonette, with its greenbelt location, provides the opportunity to connect with the outdoor space - creating a light-filled space in all the rooms. The goal was to open it up and maximise the natural light and take advantage of the expansive views in the surrounding area.
The natural light is optimised using sheer curtains and blinds, providing a spectacular view of the greenbelt outside. The African leather beanbags, handmade in the Northern region of Nigeria, also add some dynamism to the scheme.  Some paintings are displayed along the staircase, presenting a private gallery at the entrance.
Inspired by the natural elements of light and the greenbelt in its surrounding, the interior has an overall clean, crisp and natural feel.  The natural light is enhanced with the use of furniture that allows air and light to pass through.

Restaurant and Bar Design

Restaurants are places where people come together to socialise and share their stories. This restaurant design is characterised by its linear and minimalistic style. The patterned flooring gives an interesting contrast to the rest of the decor.
The acrylic furniture maximises the natural light reflected from the windows. An elevated stage with a large screen tv\projector is visible to most guests and is used for live performances.

 

Bathroom Project

A stylish, streamlined, and serene bathroom. Mirrored cabinet, drawer unit and a wall niche make everything in this bathroom easy to see, grab, and store.
