The extension is where more of the modern elements come out to shine, yet SJB weave in the home’s original and added structures together with elegance. Defined by a palette of greys, blacks and whites and a layout of long, horizontal planes, the extension shares characteristics with its classic companion, yet as SJB say “mimic the heritage portion without mimicking style”. Further to bringing the separate spaces together is the choice of furnishings, artwork and lighting, which feel confidently modern. Bold shapes and rich materials are showcased in pieces like the Bell Table and Tufty-Time Sofa, while shades of turquoise and navy add vibrancy to the living areas.
Working within heritage constraints and faced with a traditional building required to meet modern life, SJB have well and truly risen to the challenge, capturing Clark’s design legacy while breathing new life into an architecturally significant home.
