Maison et Objet September 2014 is right around the corner. Already there’s a smell of brand new furniture over the more than 200 000 square meters of the Parc des Expositions de Paris Nord Villepinte. Starting From Tomorrow, (the 5th of September 2014), all the way to the 9th, Paris will show you what’s new in the world of interior design.
Andy Martin Architects have completed their latest London project: Mews 04, a large 5 bedroom double fronted mews house in London’s Hyde Park.
A.M.A. achieved an elegant blend between the existing classical spaces and furniture and their own contemporary interventions.
The initial brief was to re-design the timber framed faux Victorian Style conservatory, completed in the 80’s. A.M.A.’s solution was to replace it with a similar form avoiding having to elaborate a potentially difficult and lengthy planning application. The original design of three barrel vaults was transformed into a contemporary sine curve form, with 3 large curved double glazed units, the largest single horizontal units in the UK.
This elegant form has the appearance of a single sheet of flowing glass forming the new conservatory roof. This new space was to become the spring board for a new aesthetic approach of the rest of the house.
The entrance lobby’s floor is an elaborated mosaic of hand cut 10mm square marble pieces laid to repetitive wave form graphic. A.M.A. designed the bespoke bronze and glass inlayed entry doors which announce the public spaces; the living room and conservatory. Floor finishes on the ground level are hand rubbed concrete to create a Terrazzo type patina. Three large bronze french doors open out from the conservatory to connect with the classical garden layout.
A new floating stair divides the house in two with a new roof light bringing natural light to the centre of the house. Dyed and brushed solid oak flooring runs throughout, from the stairs, flooring and the doors. In the bathrooms, solid marble bath and basins carved to A.M.A’s unique organic style are laid delicately with the warmth of a timber floor and walls.
A.M.A. took the opportunity to design all the built in joinery, bathroom units and the bespoke door handles and door hinges.
Come for the stick figures. Stay for the Bergman.
