This wow-worthy makeover, conducted by architects Red Button Development and featuring wow-worthy wooden furniture by William Garvey, combines a twist of history with endless lashings of modern detail: think floating beds, savvy storage and careful incorporation of every inch of space. The project in a nutshell
Who lives here? A single male homeowner The style:A historic property with a thoroughly modern twist
Architects: Red Button Development
The William Garvey team thought it was incredibly important for the bespoke furniture designs they created to match the historic settings, with a need to be 'sympathetic to the architecture' of the property, as well.
Understated yet luxe wooden details run through the whole of the property; a plank-style headboard in the bedroom below, for example, and simplistic benches providing both seating and storage.
Let's talk about those beds! Both the master and secondary bedrooms feature stunningly designed floating bed, created by Nico Rensch at Red Button Development and breathed into reality by the William Garvey team. How were they made? "The bedframe is hidden on a pedestal to give the floating illusion," explains the team; integral LED lighting adds extra klout to the floating illusion.
A carefully combined mix of woods - oak, teak, smoked eucalyptus and walnut, to be precise - is effortlessly blended throughout the space. In that open-plan cooking-dining area, for example, wooden columns add extra interest to the airy, glass-lined space.
On the subject of the kitchen, cast your eye over this super-smart table option.
The multi-tasking oak countertop acts as both a worktop and a table; just add chairs to create a dining space like no other. Clever, no? See more pictures of this kitchen redesign, including the open-plan entertaining area, here.
