From the inside, it’s hard to believe this is a central London townhouse. Baked earth, eroded stone, oxidised metal and handmade textiles all contribute to a sense of rootedness in nature. Moving the staircase leading down to the basement pulled the ground floor rooms together, and allowed for a serene and uncluttered kitchen and living space below, looking on to the garden. At the top of the house, the ceiling was raised to the roof, giving the upper levels a soaring sense of space.

This five-storey building was converted from a jumble of bedsits into a beautifully proportioned home for long term customers of our salvage warehouse. Huge slabs of bookmatched marble from an old stonemason’s yard, and chevron-patterned mirrors from the Unilever factory bring strong graphic elements into an airy design that gives each member of the family their own distinctively designed zone.
