Set within a Georgian house in Bryanston Square, Marleybone, this apartment renovation by London based architecture firm DRDH breathes new contemporary life into an historical old building.
In opening up the floor plan to allow light to flood through the interior, the designers behind the reconfiguration have created a spatial interconnectedness within the home and the way in which the rooms are used. Drawing on inspiration from the ‘painter of tranquil rooms’, Danish Artist Wilhelm Hammershoi, the DRDH team have used a soft tonal palette and sparsely placed furniture arrangements to create an interior that reflects a sense of quiet introspection and contemplation throughout.

Bespoke furniture pieces are used to create rooms within rooms and are designed to recede rather than impede the interior space. Oak parquetry flooring, timber furniture and warm white painted walls and cabinetry in the kitchen create a soft, mellow mood to the room with classical elements of white marble and contemporary white metal sconces adding an understated contemporary edge to the space. Floor to ceiling panelled glass doors and windows create a feeling of grandeur and scale, adding to the timeless nature and style of this homes redesign.
