Spurred on by the clients’ love of the National Theatre and its use of shuttered concrete, BVDS wanted to give them a reference to this within their home, whilst still being original. Photography by French + Tye.
The whole of the ground floor plan has been transformed into a single open plan space. While a mix of double and hidden doors make it flexible and interconnected throughout, room zones are defined via level and material changes. The dining and kitchen area is tiled with charred black wood flooring, chosen to produce a striking backdrop for the terrazzo kitchen and island, which is connected with a matching terrazzo floor. The prominent red structural column highlights the clients’ love of Bauhaus creativity and primary colours.
This home was inspired by the clients’ personality and distinct taste to come together in a fun, adventurous exploration of materiality.
