Marble Arch, Luxury apartment “A balance of space and functionality” The brief for this project was to provide functional and flexible living space for the family and for entertaining guests with a luxury hotel feel.
Beaconsfield, Bespoke new build “Traditional with contemporary touches” We were asked to “tweak” the interior of this mock Georgian new build designed by Christopher Gregory of Danks Badnell. The front door could not be repositioned so we incorporated a double-entry hallway. The original design for the staircase was a standard square frame which we changed to a sweeping curved staircase. We then curved the walls and added a handmade wrought iron basket weave balustrade with oak handrail. Finally a bespoke chandelier highlighted the centre of the house. We opened up the wall space to create wider doorways and increased the height of the doors to allow the light in. The bespoke feature doors between the hallway and garden room were made with a metallic finish. To bring the Georgian feel back to this house, wall panelling, skirtings, architraves and coving detail were introduced, flowing through the ground floor. The kitchen was handmade and painted to reflect the wood panelling. Each of the bathrooms were individually designed for their occupants, linked by contemporary details.
Richmond, Complete renovation “A lovely family home” Our brief was to create a luxury private residence from an iconic 1960s house with distinctive features overlooking Richmond Park. Moving the front door to a more prominent position opened up the ground floor and created a large hallway with a floor-to-ceiling picture window allowing for more light. We designed the Italian-style minimalist kitchen with an extended living area for our client’s young family and converted the integral garage to create a self-contained annex. Leading off from the dining room was the study/library, easily hidden with pocket doors when entertaining. The sleeping accommodation was on the first floor. We were able to add an ensuite and a dressing room to the master bedroom. A vaulted ceiling gave the impression of more space and light. The two other bedrooms and the family bathroom were large and airy and fitted with bespoke joinery. To finish off this family home in a luxurious style, we used velvets, leather and heavy ribbed cottons in rich, deep colours.
Knightsbridge, London, Mews house “Bring in the light” This beautiful mews house was originally a stable. Our brief was to open it up and bring as much light as possible into the back of the building. A sliding door system between the kitchen and the lounge created flexible floor space on the ground floor that could be adjusted to suit the occasion. On the first floor, the original arched ceilings were one of our favourite features of this property. To capitalise on these, we removed all the existing walls which opened up the space. The master bedroom had a large bathroom but no storage, removing the walls allowed us to make a new door opening and create two skylights, one for the ensuite, and to add the necessary fitted wardrobe.
Windsor, Conceptual refurbishment “A potential refurbishment without losing any integrity” The aim of the overall look for this property was for a contemporary high-end finish using quality products, but with a simplicity in the design. Our plan was to render the house in a deep soft white with a dimpled affect and add partial exterior cladding with an Accoya wood stain that in time would turn silver. The new windows were in light grey metal and the contemporary front door finished in oak to reflect the mature trees that surround this property. The outside planning influenced the inside design. The interiors had stone and wood flooring and bespoke joinery all reflecting the outdoor finishes. To introduce a contemporary feel, the bespoke kitchen had brushed matt lacquer cabinets, wood and stone counter tops and coloured glass top cabinets.
Surrey, Contemporary residence “Family home with a fully integrated home system” The brief for this 1930s detached house in Surrey was for a family home with a fully integrated home system. Working on plan, we designed a two-storey extension to accommodate an open plan kitchen, separate TV and dining area, with bi-fold doors leading on to a large patio. The first floor had an extra-large master bedroom with ensuite and dressing room, along with three further bedrooms, all ensuite. The contemporary interiors were in keeping with the requirements of each room from moody for the lounge/cinema room with its integrated fire to light and airy for the entrance. All the carpentry and upholstery was bespoke – American walnut staircase, high gloss kitchen, bathroom cabinets, wardrobes, arched front door with bespoke etched glass, deep buttoned plush velvet sofa and armchairs along with a bespoke master bed. Large porcelain tiles were used on the floor in the hallway leading into the kitchen with dark rich wood flooring in the study and lounge area giving this project a contemporary feel.
