Westbourne Park, London
This brief was to provide both a house and a setting for an expanding collection of wonderful contemporary paintings. We opened up the ground floor and provided secret screens for occasional spatial sub-division. Proportions of rooms were improved with some slightly lowered ceilings, raised doorways and walls of joinery.
Many special features were designed including stainless steel hearths and curtain rails, terrazzo worktops and reclaimed teak floors. We advised on the furniture selection and painting hanging and designed the modern parterre garden.
For enthusiastic new owners, we have just rejoined the basement flat to the house, using a glass and steel staircase.
