design et al are delighted to announce that Elite Design Studio have been shortlisted for Residential £2.5-5 Million (Property by Value) Award within The International Design and Architecture Awards 2018.
Elite Design Studio were appointed to complete a full refurbishment of this beautiful property, nestled in the heart of rural Cheshire. This luxurious and elegant late Arts and Crafts style family home was designed over four floors to provide a property in excess of 10,000 sq. ft. It includes many design features including a bespoke designed marble sweeping staircase through all four floors of the property, Solid Oak framed trusses in the double height dining room, study, large family reception rooms, large open plan kitchen, day Living Room, Orangery, a 6-person lift, 6 bedrooms along with a separate living guest suite and 6 en-suite bathrooms. A large leisure suite basement accommodation was also built with separate swimming pool, steam room, gym, media room, games room, and feature wine cellar.
The design brief was to create a timeless, contemporary style within their clients existing home. This consisted of a full renovation to enhance key rooms within the property, whilst embracing and integrating signature pieces of their clients existing furniture, to ensure they preserved their beautiful personal touches. Alongside being contracted the interior design brief, they also fully project managed the refurbishment, overseeing the entire process from conception to completion. This included the full design service, space planning, project conception, specification of all loose furniture and bespoke items, tender to trades and contractors, procurement, and full project installation coordinating.
Elite Design Studio’s favourite two spaces are said to be the free-flowing kitchen/day living space and the formal living room. Two rooms that had no sense of belonging before, with scattered furniture and no real purpose have been transformed into two luxurious, striking rooms and are two of the most significant rooms in the house now. The designers believe that the project works so well because it has made a house a home again. A couple of the rooms within this house were never used by the client because they felt they lacked personality, were cold in appearance and quite dated. Elite Design Studio have created a mixture of the perfect entertaining spaces as well as those cosy and relaxing spaces for their whole family to enjoy.
