Our client’s relationship with another London architect had broken down while substantial refurbishment and alteration work had already started on site to this 1930’s house in a sensitive conservation area. In a very short time we were required to step into the project to produce a new contemporary design, in conjunction with an established team.
Through intensive dialogue with the client, interior designer and contractor all working very closely together, every aspect of the house interior was re-evaluated and significantly redesigned to keep the project on track. All rooms of the house were refitted; at ground floor a design was developed that opened up the whole floor, but allowed for enclosure of rooms via pocketed sliding doors and screens. In the top floor a generous master suite was formed making the most of the sloping roof profile.
A design language was developed of simple pared-back contemporary and traditional details, which allowed for the rich interior colours and furnishings to be the main focus within the new layout.
