Majestic Private Home in UK with a Highly Modern Feel

Majestic Private Home in UK with a Highly Modern Feel

We recently received this amazing interior design project from Sybarite, an architectural and design studio founded in 2002. Here are some extracts from the press release they sent us:  “This complete refurbishment of a four floor / four bedroom Victorian townhouse in West London’s Brackenbury Village required  sensitivity. The brief was to completely gut this wreck of a house and create a very liveable and practical home for this busy family with three young children. Although great design was on the wish list, the house mainly had to become a comfortable family home maximising the usable space and storage. The interior intervention juxtaposes old and new, respecting the Victorian heritage while applying a contemporary intervention which works seamlessly without jarring. The original staircase runs like spine through house, its minimal restoration allowing you to read its age so that it becomes the focal point against which a simple, elegant refurbishment is contrasted. Tying together the modern aspects of the house is the use of concrete, which is utilized in various places, polished as flooring and shuttered to clad several fireplaces throughout the house.

An important element of the brief for this area was to maximise storage so that the whole family could easily share this space without it becoming too cluttered. Deep, floor to ceiling lacquered cupboards run along one whole wall, providing ample space to pack away toys and games so the room can be easily transformed from child’s playroom to relaxed entertaining area for grownups.”

    ..but, whatever you do,don’t have any real kids, and don’t let people give you presents that you haven’t specifically asked for and allocated space for, that fits in with the decor, and don’t have any pets other than fish…

    I saw some disadvantages after fifth viewing. I think that bed in bedroom is claustrophobic, stairs are too high, I don’t belive that anybody can sleep in children room…
    But, design is breathtaking! This is one of the prettiest homes I saw here so I don’t mind for disadventages.
