Originally standing on this plot, a small one-bedroom mews cottage was demolished in order to make way for our client; The Church Commissioners vision. The client saw potential to develop a luxurious residence embracing the geometries of the site in the concept.
Working alongside Belsize Architects, the design team here at The Furniture Union achieved an architectural four bedroom house, spread across three floors with a fantastically spacious basement.
Using light wells and organic angles formed by the available space, we maximised every inch to capitalise on rental return for our client.
We were runners up for several prestigious international design awards for our kitchen and living space, such as SBID and KBB.
To create a unique space with unconventional palettes and impressive elements. We were employed to design and supply the product specification, design the internal layout, project manage and procure all product for this project.
The most challenging aspect was to work with the geometry of the architecture. With no right-angles to work with all of the rooms created required off the wall thinking for the en-suites, bedrooms and even the storage.
Taking inspiration from the Charred Timber external Cladding – Shou Sugi Ban, we created a sensuous, dark and enigmatic interior. Most would choose a light palate for a scheme with a basement but we endeavoured to challenge the norm!
We managed to create a generous four bathroom, four bedroom property, with lots of natural light pouring into the basement. With the use of reflective materials such as polished copper we were able to bounce natural lighting around from the sprawling skylights sliced through the skin of the building.
