The brief for the house, was to make them their dream home. The family had been waiting to move into their dream home for some time, but wanted to wait until they could achieve their dreams. Due to Rosendale design’s long standing relationship with the clients, they were confident the designers would realise their vision.
The key aspects that really are important are on the ground floor. Here, the spaces were all broken up and boxed in. The space needed opening up as the family entertains a lot and opening the spaces up onto each other would improve the flow dramatically. They also extended the living room and installed a fully glazed facade to flood the space with natural light.
The client, being a celebrity Chef, wanted a special kitchen to be proud of. He did not only want to have a statement kitchen but to create an area that would become a gathering space for the whole family, which is so important to him. Secondly, he always assumed that he would do filming in the kitchen so he wanted it to be a show kitchen that reflected him, this also made light and lighting so important.
In the basement, a cinema room was created for the family to unwind in. Rosendale design also installed a games room with a feature bar so that when they are entertaining, they can go down stairs and play pool and have a few drinks. Another statement in the basement is the cellar room which houses the client’s family extensive wine collection.
On the first floor, the master bedroom which leads on to a wardrobe, which in turn leads to the ensuite. The dark oak wardrobes are balanced out by the white Carrara marble bathroom. Just opposite the master bedroom is the wife’s changing room. The brief for the wardrobe rooms was to really give each of them their own space where their personalities and preferences were able to shine through.
The design works so well because the house reflects the clients personalities and interests. Not only does it reflect the family but it has given them a space where the family can thrive and stay connected instead of being segregated.
