Known as the Edwardian Glass house, this south-west London scheme brings together stunning period features with super-modern design and tech. The project involved renovating the entire home as well as carving out a large basement, bringing together two distinctive styles within the space. The ground and upper floors preserved original features, such as Edwardian coving and restored windows for the traditional kitchen, dining and living spaces, while the uber-contemporary basement houses a home cinema, gym and high-end listening room. To show off the contrast between old and new, the lighting system features custom-engraved antique bronze light switch plates for the ‘Old House’ and brushed nickel for the ‘New Basement’. In a final flourish to preserve the home’s character, we integrated the existing antique push-doorbell to ring through on touchscreens and speakers throughout the house.
