How would you describe your style?

"We work closely with each client to bring their vision to life. With no “house style” each project is approached with a passion for design and a concept that is unique to the client. Our projects often lean towards an aesthetic that is sophisticated, contemporary and elegant, sourcing materials from Europe and the rest of the world."

"Two years in the making, our latest project consisted of transforming a traditional Arts and Crafts style cottage into a luxurious home, synthesising heritage charm with contemporary open plan living. The transformation was meticulously planned to retain features of the original house and character, such as leaded windows and a gable roof, whilst introducing a fresh, modern and luxurious aesthetic.

Impressive vistas through the space start from the front door, inviting you in to explore the architectural details of this family home. The large open kitchen and living spaces are set in front of a backdrop of a luscious tropical-inspired garden with expanses of five-metre-wide glass doors connecting the interior with the exterior. Two bespoke single-panel skylights flood the kitchen with even more natural light, creating a bright, welcoming space. The intentional contrast between this modern, expansive extension and the proportions of the original cottage is harmonised through the finishes and colour palette throughout."
