Prominent Property – Paddington

Originally standing on this plot, a small one-bedroom mews cottage was demolished to make way for our client; The Church Commissioners’ vision. The client saw the 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 very spacious basement.

Using light wells and organic angles formed by the available space, we maximised every inch to capitalise on our client’s rental return.

We were runners up for several prestigious international design awards for our kitchen and living space, such as SBID and KBB.

The Brief

To create a unique space with unconventional palettes and unique elements. We were employed to design and supply the product specification, design the internal layout, manage and procure all products for this project.

The Design

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!

The Design

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 building’s skin.
