“It is dramatic yet still feels like a home because it is full of personality with so many interesting features and attention to detail. Excellent use of British craftsmanship.”
Sir Terence Conran
This unique residence in the leafy heart of Little Venice won The Daily Telegraph British Homes – Best Interior Design in 2011. The scheme was an extensive refurbishment of a redundant furniture store in a Victorian coach house and dilapidated, glass roofed workshop behind.
The Coach House was retained and carefully refurbished to provide a double height bedroom suite complete with dressing area and bathroom, while the utilitarian workshop to the rear was demolished and replaced with a triple height living space. Ground level leads through a hydraulically operated door into the garden outside, a basement media room borrows light via a structural glass floor.
The team worked closely with garden designer Chris Moss to make a seamless blend of interior to the small walled garden outside.
Winner of Interior Design category at The Daily Telegraph British Homes Awards 2011
