We commissioned by a musician and her family to design the interiors of their country house. The design team worked in collaboration with the client and her husband throughout the programme of works, which included the addition of a contemporary glass extension to a period building. The house is nestled within the Somerset countryside and large expanses of glass help connect the house to the landscape beyond. The design team took material and colour references from the surroundings, including the large natural timber dining table and the forest green accent colours that feature throughout the property. The result is a great combination of intimate rooms and spacious, light filled spaces in which to live, socialise and be creative.

Zulufish
A Victorian terraced townhouse set over five storeys, with five bedrooms and four bathrooms on the upper two floors; a double drawing room, family room, snug, study and hall on the first and ground levels, and a utility room, nanny suite and kitchen-dining room leading to a garden on the lower level. Settling here from overseas, the owners of this house in Primrose Hill chose the area for its quintessentially English architecture and bohemian feel. They loved the property’s original features and wanted their new home to be light and spacious, with plenty of storage and an eclectic British feel. As self-confessed ‘culture vultures’, the couple’s art collection formed the basis of their home’s colour palette.

Coffey / Homes
Many homes don’t enjoy a flat floor, a home on a hill or an existing terrace property for example. We have seen some real ‘up and down’ houses. Whilst these levels can be seen as a challenge they also offer great opportunity. Where there are changes in level there are opportunities to get light between. Expanding the floor space of the house into rooms that have views of the garden and sky, playing with the difference in heights can be a joy if handled correctly. At Capablanca house the change in levels allowed views from the front to the back of the house creating views right through the house. It is always a lovely thing to be able to see light on both sides of a home. A mix of white and dark, tobacco-stained sawn oak creates a unique chequerboard look. Paying homage to this, we've named the house Capablanca, a variant of chess that was invented in the 1920s. The play of materials brought together in harsh light breaks apart the cave-like feel of this small space, the exploded and reconfigured series of parts creating a new scale of room to live in. Creating tall spaces in small residential properties can raise the living rooms above the usual. Ground floors are normally imprisoned below bedrooms, breaking the visual dominance of the ceiling above and welcoming south light in a surprising and delightful way can add enormously to the pleasures of life at home.
