TIMELESS, MID-CENTURY DESIGN
Our team carried out a complete back-to-brick refurbishment and extension to transform this private residential property into an inner-city sanctuary suitable for both relaxing and entertaining in. The mid-century modern design scheme for this family home in south-west London is seamlessly reflected throughout the interior and exterior. We wanted it to feel contemporary, luxurious and sophisticated while remaining warm and inviting. A sense of harmony and unity is achieved through the subtle repetition of distinct design elements, and the communal living spaces are transitional, making them fit for all members of the family. For this project, Designed by Woulfe won the 'Residential Interior Private Residence London' award at the UK Property Awards 2020 and was a finalist at the British Homes Awards 2020.
"The DBW team really went above and beyond when it came to the project management of the overall project. They were called to take on more than would be expected of a designer when the principle builder started to miss deadlines. Brian personally supervised many of the meetings onsite that allowed us to move into our home. I can confidently say that the project would not have been completed if it were not for the DBW team."
JP & JB, Residential Client
British limestone was used for the inside and outside flooring so that when the kitchen opens up onto the garden, both spaces feel united.
The outdoor space had to be as chic as the interiors while reflecting similar design principles for a connected, cohesive feel.
Bespoke joinery in sunflower yellow and panelled upholstery provides a cosy reading alcove with a pop of colour.
The oak curved open slatted feature wall allows light to flow through the space whilst giving a sense of privacy when unwinding on the sofa.
.A custom walnut floating headboard divides the space and creates a walk-in dressing room area.
We brought this family-friendly design scheme to life by combining natural and textured materials and repeated design details dressed with personable and sentimental home accessories collected by the client.
