This six-bedroom Victorian home in West London has been given a contemporary update while preserving its period grandeur.
Gregory Phillips Interior Design was commissioned by their clients in Chiswick to create a luxurious and comfortable modern home that is both practical and beautiful.
Fluid relationships between the interior and exterior spaces are formed via vast sliding doors that open out onto the garden; the luxurious ranges of fabrics, natural stone, and marble create layers of texture.
A sculptural extension clad in patinated brass panels was added to the rear of the house offering more sunlight and space to the ground floor areas whilst creating an exceptional openness to the newly landscaped garden.
A basement excavation was undertaken at the same time, giving the client 240 sqm of new living areas, including a generously-sized hang-out room for the children, a cinema, an office, a utility room, and a spectacular wine store for the family’s 1500 bottle collection.
The layout of the house has been vastly improved to maximise the drama of the spaces. The clean modern details are complemented using natural materials to create a calm contemporary and sophisticated aesthetic, and one that is entirely functional as a contemporary family home.
