With Marylebone, Proctor & Shaw transformed a small inefficient apartment into a light, practical and elegant home that, thanks to a sober and light palette of materials and colours, seems larger and more open.
and beautiful design solutions. The client's wishes always come first and are then perfectly integrated with the studio's design philosophy. This was also the case in the Marylebone Apartment where Proctor & Shaw completely renovated the interior. They were given the challenging task of reconfiguring the inefficient layout with one bathroom and one bedroom and adding two double bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, as well as a generous open plan kitchen and dining and living space.
From small and inefficient to practical and open by Proctor & Shaw
The beautiful common terrazzo staircase from the fifties served as inspiration for an approach with rich materials and textures. The home is shrouded in a sober palette of beige, black, white, wood and concrete. The well-considered selection of furniture ensures that each space is used to its full potential.
An efficient wall and a light and sober palette make the rooms seem bigger
Behind a wall of wooden slats in the living room are the en suite bedrooms. The living space, containing the open plan kitchen and dining area, runs the entire length of the apartment. The doors and storage systems in the finely finished wall are not visible which creates a minimalist, elegant and spacious look without too many details and clutter. This already makes the design much more efficient. Also the mainly light colours of the wood, walls and furniture make the room look bigger and make this a fine, sober and elegant home.
