  • Throwback to this dynamic bookcase we designed, crafted and install for a very fun project in central London. This bookcase was designed to be the key piece in the client's open plan living room. The different depth and size book boxes created a textured wall, adding character and personality to the room.

  • Today a bit about how we communicate our ideas and designs to our clients. Swipe to see our creative process, in this case showcasing our design for the Master Bedroom in this full interior design and bespoke joinery design project we are currently working on in central London, for which we have created an overall concept with our interpretation of a Contemporary Victorian house.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Upon discussing with our clients their brief and design dreams, we create a Concept Design for the entire project, which then we take to each and every room of the house. This materialises in a personalised selection of finishes and textures that gives each space a unique personality yet coherence with the whole house.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For us, there is no better way to transmit our Concept Design than seeing it coming to life! We find these drawings and visualisations (although time consuming) accompanied with material and mood boards to be very helpful to transmit our ideas when communicating with our clients and other professionals we work with. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • A very short moment of respite from the rain at our HQ earlier today. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Not really Biophilic design as such, however we do love plants in our environments and believe in the power they have to make us feel good, enhance creativity and better the air we breath, amongst other positive qualities! Make sure you always look after your and those around you wellbeing! 🙏🏼🌿

  • Food for thought to start this wet week. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Architecture Studio Precht has developed a concept for modular housing where residents produce their own food in vertical farms. The architects developed this building, The Farmhouse, as a way to reconnect people in cities with agriculture and help them to live in a more sustainable way. (Both great ideas in our opinion)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In the architect’s words: "I Think we miss the physical and mental connection with nature and this project could be a catalyst to reconnect ourselves with the life-cycle of our environment". After reading this article in Dezeen, we think that, although the concept sounds great and we love the idea of integrating nature and vegetable patches into our residences and daily life, enhancing the sense of community within our building, we are unsure about how healthy these home grown produce will be considering the level of pollution most of the big cities around the world have. (interestingly these green patches within the balconies will possibly work as filter towards the air quality for the building inhabitants)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Do you see yourself growing your own veggies in your balcony? Will you eat them? We are divided here at the studio. Me personally, I had, in the past, grown some tomatoes and other vegetables in the small front garden I had when I used to live in London, and most definitely ate them ;) However one thing we all seem to agree at the studio is the  value the modularity and sustainability of this concept has, something we would love to see more in our cities. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thoughts?
