When the clients found the property, it had been divided into several flats and lost nearly all of its original features. We transformed the property back into a single home that would cater to the facets of modern life most revered by the clients—prioritising spaces for entertaining, exercising, and relaxing.
While open-plan living was central to the brief, we were careful to ensure the original proportions of the house were not compromised—maintaining a level of individuality and personalisation to each space. On the lower ground floor the kitchen enjoys a harmonious blend of materials, such as a large marble island delicately detailed with copper, accompanied by polished concrete flooring, and bespoke cabinetry.
A powerful staircase fabricated in blackened steel and clad in a bespoke finished oak has been reinstated in the original stair-well position, connecting all floors throughout the building.
On the first floor, the main bedroom connects to the en-suite bathroom by way of sliding doors. In the main bathroom, a large skylight has been added to maximise the flow of natural light. A double shower and soaking tub are accompanied by bespoke marble fronted his-and-hers basins.
At basement level, a generous height ensures the gym and home office retain ample light, refraining from the traditional realm of dark basement spaces.
The rear elevation is presented in a custom profile folded fascia in patinated bronze, framing a large set of sliding doors that open into the main kitchen. Also featured in the rear extension is an elegant large marble panel that forms a harmonious connection between exterior and interior through material palette. Outside, limestone paving leads to the outdoor living space. Divided by flower beds, steps lead up to an al-fresco dining area, with casual seating beside a fire pit.
