Design Practice Location:
This project was created for a young family with a small child. The entire space has been reconceived and re-planned. Our brief was to leave the existing structure in place, and use it to create the feeling of a European family home – where the painting collection owned by the clients could be harmoniously displayed. The approach to the space was similar to the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, where walls in complex shades of grey create the perfect background for paintings. The final result was a lyrical space in which classical artworks and antiques, collected from many travels, sit perfectly alongside modern furniture, materials and architecture. The designers aimed to make their involvement as unobtrusive as possible so that every room embodies the personal style and taste of the clients.
