About Us

Christian Bense is a London-based interior design studio whose goal is to fashion liveable spaces with a focus on texture and a play between strong aesthetics and practical living. The homes they create are well-rounded and full of depth. After completing his degree in South Africa, Christian spent the early years of his career working on a broad range of projects, including both high-end new-build residential, and boutique commercial offerings. He moved to London in 2015 to work for Turner Pocock, before forming his own design studio five years later.

How would you describe your style?

"My style reflects the cross-pollination of contemporary and traditional. Mixing the blank slate thinking of South Africa with a distinct nod to the more traditional homes and interiors of the UK."

"With references pulled from the forever classic Heckfield Place and Ett Hem hotel, this project says more about my client's impeccable taste than anything else. What started as a single consultation to help tie up a few loose ends in the early stages of the build, my consultancy role soon became a fully involved design service. With the scope covering all six bedrooms, the vast open-plan living spaces, formal lounges and a fully equipped basement cinema, this project is a prime example of collaboration, clear focus and the freedom to deliver on brief."
