Large Victorian Property

This client completed a classic south London Victorian side return, plus a back extension. Maximising a lot more square footage than they originally had, which in London is gold dust!

The Brief

Large Victorian semi-detached property

The client’s initial brief came from her inspiration of the front of our Fulham showroom, she wanted a really grand space that also retained an underlying homely feel. It was really important for the space to be extremely practical as they have two young children, but the aesthetic finish equally drove the final decisions. The client was keen on a contemporary feel for the space, but it was important to keep some traditional features that sit well with the Victorian property. Our original shaker door suited this space perfectly, the door is simple but still retains the shaker detailing which ties in with the original features of the house. The use of colour in this particular space has helped modernise the door style.

The space designed by the architect was really great to work with, sometimes larger spaces can be trickier to design as there are so many potential options. However, with the clients brief it was easy to pin point locations of appliances quickly. This is the usual driver for the start of any space. The client has also clearly defined some areas that were a ‘must have’. An American Style fridge freezer with ice and water was one of these, alongside a Range style oven. Having these two areas defined allowed me to build the design simply around these areas, whilst keeping in mind the practical side. Placing the sink on the island directly in front of the Range is a great practical and aesthetic choice, this allows easy movement between two heavy footfall areas.

The Design

The client was also really keen to incorporate a built-in bench on the island, making it really practical for feeding her children after nursery and school. We adapted our cabinetry to incorporate this into the design, I think this really set’s our cabinetry and design away from typical London spaces.

This was a large building project that lasted over the course of 6 months, we liaised directly with the build team, architects and the clients to bring this project together.
