Bayswater Mews House
The interior of this contemporary mews house in Bayswater, London, was essentially a «white box» when acquired by our client. An avid skier and outdoorsman, he sought our assistance to bring warmth and natural textures into the beautifully proportioned and uniquely configured open plan spaces.
Keen on entertaining at home and a collector of wine, we created for our client a temperature-controlled wine tasting room in the basement with custom designed cabinetry for bottle storage and clad with reclaimed wine case fronts. In the kitchen, we designed a glass cabinet, used to store his collection of wine tasting glasses and simultaneously lighting both the kitchen and the staircase.
Colour was used throughout the house to define floors. The the journey begins on the lower floors in earthy tones. We then gradually introduced greens and blues on the upper floors, culminating in a «sanctuary in the sky» on the top floor, which opens out onto a secluded terrace among the London rooftops.
