This exceptional residential project, located London, occupied a prime location with plenty of potential to create a stunning home. However, the property had not been updated for over 30 years and was in need of a major renovation to breathe some life into it.
With a confusing original layout and no clear flow, the apartment felt more compact and dated than it really was. The client asked for a complete refurbishment that would help the property succeed when brought to market. The brief was to create a contemporary feel through the interior design, whilst also adding bespoke elements that would inject personality and character into the apartment.
In a practical sense, the apartment also needed to appeal to a broad market, therefore it was important to get the balance of 'modern' and 'practical' right.
Havwoods worked alongside the designers to create a space that would look impressive, even when stripped of all its furnishings. This meant ensuring that all the hard finishes were of high-end quality, and that they were visually appealing on their own. The thoughtful pops of color bring an element of interest, plus provide a nice contrast from the beautiful natural elements.
The flooring was a big part of the design, as it connected the living spaces with the entrance and the bespoke staircase. While the apartment is on the first floor, it features its own entrance, so the staircase was finished to match the Havwoods flooring to ensure continuity. The distinctive, light finish of the Blanco herringbone boards provided a stunning addition to the home.
Certain structural elements of the building caused a challenge; however, one particular room with a ceiling too low to become a bedroom was transformed into a cinema room.
Now, the apartment provides a contemporary, yet inviting home that will be enjoyed for the next 30 years and beyond!
