Total refurbishment of a Victorian terraced property in Holland Park with extensive reconstruction of the garden. Beautiful period details, such as jade-green marble fireplaces, were retained and enhanced by adding clean modern lines to the interior layout. The color scheme has been picked up again throughout the property in subtle, whimsical nods to the exotic: a bespoke kitchen uniting contemporary form with classical green and bronze (and stone imported from the owner’s native alps); a patio of glazed green tiles from Marrakech leading up to a lush garden complete with palm trees.
Meticulous attention to detail is abundant in best-in-class German joinery as well as clever solutions such as a concealed “vertical mud room” offering parking for the owner’s children’s prams; a fold-out king-sized bed in the playroom; and a tunneled-under garden providing ample storage space.
New layout to separate a split-level penthouse with upstairs swimming pool in a Seventies apartment building into two separate lofts. Extra-wide floor-to-ceiling windows lead to expansive continuous terrace space around the entire property. Surrounded by vibrant greenery, the inhabitant gets the sense of living in a sumptuous tree house.
Work for the client also included bespoke furniture and a revamped color-scheme, such as painting the exterior of the property to resemble a black jewel.
This private client asked for an interior design concept that should be minimal without sacrificing the property’s unique character and atmosphere. This was achieved by custom designing functional furniture including tables, beds and storage units that fit organically within the space. The custom elements were augmented by vintage pieces sourced from dealers and flea markets.
This spa, there a seven designed by the architect, revolves around the ultimate relaxation brought about by floating on concentrated salt water in state-of-the-art tanks. The design concept is informed by the extraordinary shape of the flotation tanks themselves; the curves, color and special lighting immerse the visitor in a relaxing atmosphere while building up an architectural brand identity to provide consistency for future locations
Complete redesign of an existing practice to create a place where patients feel welcome and comfortable, while reflecting the cutting-edge reputation of the client’s business.
In order to integrate the client’s desire to include nature in the reception room we created a floating room with a tree in the middle to give patients a sense of warmth and comfort. This is complemented by a curved reception desk hovering above the floor and organically-shaped lamps hanging from the ceilings, tying the space together.
Two separate apartments in this 1973 building were fused into one generous loft and the floor plans were redrawn to create a combined living room and dining space of over 70 square meters. The kitchen can be left open-plan or separated seamlessly from the dining space using paneling concealed within the wall casing, one of many custom-built solutions designed for the client. Floor-to-ceiling windows run the circumference of the apartment and provide access to the unbroken balcony from all rooms. Structured marble lends the kitchen and bathroom countertops an individual expression as do the color choices in each of the bedrooms and studies. All cabinetry and metalwork was custom designed and executed to the highest standards.
The clients had acquired this lake property in its construction shell state and loved the cool minimalistic style. We designed an open floorplan and opened the house up to the lakeside with beautiful black windows.
The layout was designed with the clients’ extraordinary art collection in mind.
The fireplaces in the living room and master bedroom add warm focal points to the sleek lines of the walls. The attic was extended to accommodate cozy bedrooms for the kids and a walk-in closet. We accentuated the exposed attic beams to create a beautiful atmosphere in the master bedroom.
