restoration : extension : interior design : bespoke furniture
This grand building had been split into four apartments and largely stripped of period character. Our client wanted to reinstate it as a luxurious, Edwardian family house, classic in style yet equipped with leading edge essential services and ‘smart house’ electronic systems.
In order to rationalise the floor plan, we removed all internal structures and remodelled the accommodation, creating an open plan layout. Specialist joiners and stone masons installed built-in joinery, windows, doors and a bespoke staircase, all meticulously styled to re-establish the period character of the house. The high-end finishes reflect the status and age of the building and all the natural materials are from renewable sources, as specified in our brief.
Built-in furniture, installed throughout, was cleverly designed to accommodate the needs of a modern family lifestyle, whilst augmenting the Edwardian expression of the house. As requested by our client, we also furnished the house, sourcing appropriate items from auctions and specialist retailers. The furnishing scheme includes some Viscount Linely pieces and Venetian light fittings, coupled with more modernist items.
