This residential house in Highgate, London has been re-designed by TG-Studio, a London based architecture and interior design practice. The building was originally designed by architects Ted Levy, Benjamin & Partners - a typical example of a London townhouse dwelling of the ‘60s.
White is the perfect colour for smaller bathrooms as it gives the illusion of space. Modern bathrooms are often without a natural source of light; reflective surfaces and brighter, lighter colours were used to open up the room.
The brief still needed to be followed through to the children’s bedroom - it comprises furniture that is comfortable and practical as well as attractive and fun.
In the kitchen, matt white walls, reflective white stone and kitchen units, soft and organic and white-stained wooden floorboards combine for a look that is sleek yet informal. All walls and ceilings are predominantly plasterboard, painted in 3 shades of white. Other materials are white lacquer finish for the kitchen joinery and with Onyx man-made stone for the worktop and the entire backsplash wall. Again, quirky details were used to bring the room to life.
When combined with this naturally treated stained wood floor , the predominantly matte white theme took on an instant chic. The light provided by the floor to ceiling windows is the perfect way to show off a non-colour scheme. Carefully placed items such as the light features give the room personality.
