Design Practice Location:
With a minimal brief to include video game/chill out rooms, a gym, sauna and outdoor basketball court, the designer transformed a Georgian lodge into a truly unique and mindboggling fun house, designed to entertain the client’s children and teenage friends while retaining the charming exterior facade. From the outside, one has no idea what lies within. All bedrooms were removed, the kitchen minimised to essentials. The designer commissioned street graffiti artists to create a Space Invader-themed den and a neon artist to create a multicoloured neon-chandeliered gaming room; the designer also created a wet room with mosaic tiles in homage to Pac-Man. A full-spec gym and sauna were installed, and in place of the basketball hoop, a multipurpose court was created with lines that change colour to allow different ballgames to be played.
