This stunning house on one of Chiswick’s prime streets has had a complete architectural redesign in line with modern-day living. Zulufish’s brief was to extend at basement, ground and loft level, flood the house with natural light and create liveable spaces for a growing family’s needs.
From the top, a huge skylight was positioned in the centre roofline where shards of light now bathe the hallways. The pursuit white marble-clad master suite juxtaposes black metal hardware in its double walk-in shower, bespoke twin vanity unit and whirlpool jet bath. The hand-crafted master dressing room is also a joy, with yards of open hanging space, drawers and central jewellery island for the keenest fashionista. Downstairs, the ground floor formal lounge and library are separated by a double-sided fireplace flanked by floor to ceiling crittal doors.
The jewel coloured velvet furniture and precious stone art pieces lead into a library with hundreds of colourful books adding character and life to this home. The full width family kitchen & snug is in pole position at back of house. This huge space has a full width skylight over the extension, smoked oak parquet floors and a marble wraparound kitchen island, paired with seamless spray-painted units. The kitchen floor has a walk-on rooflight which floods light down into a basement cinema room. This impressive room has floor to ceiling storage and a huge L-shaped sofa surrounded by sonoa for ideal film watching. This stylish colourful family homes works on every level and is a joy to live in and behold.
Winner of the Interior Design Private Residence London award in the 2019 International Property Awards, Kingswood Road was transformed by Zulufish from a typical three bed end terrace into a five bedroom light filled contemporary space perfect for family living. The most successful redesign was relocating the front door from the front of the property to the middle of the side elevation.
It was a complete transformation as you now enter a fantastic panelled hallway in the centre of the house turning left into the open plan kitchen living area and right into the lounge. Sitting on the sofa in the front lounge one can see right through to the Corten steel fireplace in the garden. The whole house feels connected and flows.
The clients love the ‘Soho House’ vibe which has an industrial cool feel but is still comfortable & durable. Overall the brief was to create unique bespoke interiors for a design-led family home with a masculine, urban industrial feel. Zulufish sourced the fabulous multicolour herringbone floor and industrial lighting to complete the look. The striking colour scheme, together with surprising vintage touches, keeps the scheme looking completely unique. This house is a perfect example of ‘the bolder the better.’
Larden Hall Apartments is a top end development of nine new build apartments, interior designed and built by Zulufish. The pedigree and construction is second to none and has a superb quality of finish and attention to detail. Floor to ceiling aluminium windows and doors open to the outdoor spaces of the courtyard gardens, balconies and expansive roof terraces, which are framed with frameless glass balustrading.
There is beautifully conceived lighting both inside and out. The kitchen mixes interesting organic textures in subtle shades. The kitchen cabinetry is constructed from high quality Italian XyloCleaf which were then clad with Denver grey marble worktops and accessories with bronze red handles. Texture vinyl wall coverings adorn the walls, cocooning you in a sense of luxury but with durability. The patterned Italian porcelain bathroom tiles run throughout paired with bespoke vanity units. Kitchen and joinery are bespoke made by HUX London. The interior architecture & design scheme has been developed with understated luxury and stylish sophistication in mind.
