With 70 years experience in the design and delivery of innovative interiors, Bonham & Bonham continually surpass the ambitions of its clients by seeking a deeper understanding of their needs and aspirations, allowing us to create the sophisticated yet intuitive spaces that are our hallmark.
Our architectural and interior design for this pied-à-terre, located in a fashionable West London neighbourhood, focused on harnessing as much natural light as possible within an urban setting. The entirely open plan ground floor living space, with a near seamless transition between inside and out, along with a number of first floor skylights, gives a feeling of light and space neglected in many central London properties.
Life imitating art
Drawing on our client’s love of the 1939 Jean Renoir masterpiece ‘La Règle du jeu’, this cinema room takes inspiration from the simple elegance of Château De La Ferté Saint Aubin, where much of the drama of the film takes place. The deep-sculpted wall panelling is carried through to a cocktail bar reminiscent of the Parisian café bars that epitomise the declining Belle Époque, contributing to the thematic ambience of this cinema room.
In seeking to combine the elegance of this Georgian country house with a modern twist, our design draws upon Vitruvian principles and encompasses traditional detailing of the era, such as the intricate raised and fielded panels and fluted columns applied to this bathroom vanity cabinet. The use of large marble tiles and the understated stonework of the bath surround and shower enhance the clean-line minimalism indicative of contemporary design.
