Eaton Mews North in London, England by Roselind Wilson Design

Friday, November 4th, 2016

Article source: Roselind Wilson Design

Eaton Mews North is a 1,700 square foot mews house located in Belgravia and arranged over four floors. Roselind Wilson Design was appointed as the interior architect to redevelop the structural interior layouts, furniture layouts and design of the kitchen, bathrooms and all interior finishes and details including doors, skirtings, joinery, architectural and decorative lighting, the staircase and all wall finishes. In keeping with the client’s brief to develop something that is unique, the look is undoubtedly layered with focus on textured fabrics and finishes and the striking use of battered and aged bronzes with bleached floors and textured timbers set against polished and honed marbles with exquisite veining and textured tiles with understated wall papers to create a subtle sense of glamour. The palette was very textural with bronzes, beiges, taupes and chocolates being the foundation colours with slight accents of green tones. The use of these tones allows for a calming sense of luxury with no brutal features that dominate the space.

Belsize Park in North West London, England by Roselind Wilson Design

Thursday, November 3rd, 2016

Article source: Roselind Wilson Design

Roselind Wilson Design was appointed to carry out the design and complete refurbishment of this 2138 square foot duplex apartment in Belsize Park, North West London. As a blank canvas, the property already demonstrated a spectacular foundation from which to start; with its extraordinary high ceilings, curved walls and door to the Drawing Room, elaborate original cornicing and enormous windows flooding the rooms with light. This stunning backdrop coupled with the client’s international influences, allowed Roselind Wilson Design to produce a stunning architectural space; modern yet classic and with a focus on rich texture and ambient lighting. Through the use of raw and textured timbers, bronze, antiqued brass and copper, marbles and a monochromatic palette a truly beautiful and welcoming space was created for the client to call home.

Amerland Road in London, England by Giles Pike Architects

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016

Article source: Giles Pike Architects 

The prospect of building a small stand-alone new house on this very restricted garage plot seemed like an improbability until we started to explore the site in three dimensions. We concluded that if we turned the house upside down and arranged the bedrooms and bathrooms on a lower ground floor, with the main living rooms on the ground floor and upper mezzanine levels, then a workable and viable plan form started to emerge. Our brief was to build the largest house possible on this 60 m2 site, which was located at the end of a garden on Velonia Gardens and next to an electricity substation on Amerland Road, with very limited access for excavation. In essence we designed the house in section rather than in plan ie the plan form was generated by the section, and the section through the house allows sunlight to penetrate deep into the interior spaces. Although the house is small in scale, it is not small in stature – in a manner of speaking it is a house that punches above its weight! When you look at the house from the outside it looks remarkably small, but once inside it has the most extraordinary light and airy feel. The positioning of the staircase, central in the house, and being a design feature in its own right encourages the eye to travel up to the mezzanine floor level and down to the basement level, therefore allowing one to perceive the three dimensional quality of the house. On the ground floor, which comprises the entrance off Amerland Road and the kitchen, dining and living areas, one is aware of the space above and space below. The staircase is a relatively lightweight fabrication in steel and glass, with open treads in hard wood, and has a delicacy and a lightness of touch, which echoes the way the house as a whole has been conceived.

The Pool House in Haslemere, England by Re-Format LLp

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

Article source: Re-Format LLp

The mature and secluded site is located in Haslemere on the edge of the Surrey Hills, enjoying stunning, long ranging views towards the South Downs and beyond.

The client’s brief was for a detached ancillary building to the existing house, to provide an indoor pool and spa, gym, bicycle workshop and glasshouse. Above all the building had to be beautiful, finely crafted at every detail using the highest quality materials. The Pool House needed to function effortlessly in a variety of environments, whether for a relaxing solitary swim or a family pool party for 30.
