Sensitivity was key to this project at the outset! Newly divorced, our client approached us with all his worldly possessions – three items of furniture – to be the inspiration for the scheme. The design team, suggested, rather awkwardly, that he dispose of two!
The clients wish list included a shower so powerful that he was pinned him to the floor; open plan entertaining spaces and a sense of cinematic colour.
Our design team, working closely with the extraordinarily talented Kaz Gasior of Belton construction, delivered. A shower was engineered that delivered an incredible seventy litres of water per minute.
The amorphic kitchen island with a 70mm thick, and four and a half meter long solid Carrara marble top, posed something of a logistical challenge. In order to fit, the facade of the Victorian Terrace property being largely removed.
A double height rear glass extension over looks the garden connecting the two entertaining spaces vertically. A rich, textured colour palette is used throughout and carefully curated bespoke items from Christopher Farr, Niche Modern, Bisazza and Piet Hein Eek make this perhaps the most charming bachelor pad in London.
