The client found a dated, late 1990s property with great renovation potential. The brief was to refurbish and transform this extensive 10,000 square foot residential property with a radically altered open floor plan and FF&E throughout designed with contemporary functionality for a busy family of six. The project involved a complete reconfiguration and extension into what has become a thoroughly modern country house with a clean-lined ‘Miami home’ look. The clients were not used to having this much space, and the designer enjoyed the opportunity to personalise this modern country house to their style and needs, together with their bold use of colour and willingness to introduce quirky touches. The contemporary design has both style and swagger, with the living areas fully benefitting from the floor-to-ceiling windows throughout.
