design et al are delighted to announce the successful shortlist for Camellia Interiors in the Residential £1-2.5 Million (Project Value) Award.
As the clients required a full project management service of their home, the complete scheme was designed very early in the project which resulted in a cohesive scheme the client understood and approved from the outset. Camellia suggested the reconfiguration of the internal layout of this property to increase the room sizes and maximise available daylight and consequentially the views. Two en suite bathrooms were introduced to the top floor to create a total of a five en suite bedroom property to host a minimum of twelve.
With the entire property facing the direction of the sea, the team had to consider all decisions with this in mind. The layout needed to flow, whilst still all facing in one direction and the three tiers of the property needed to follow the ‘right’ journey for the clients. With the brief in mind, the team therefore positioned the main rooms for hosting; including the kitchen, library/living area and games room on the centre floor in the heart of the home with all utilities placed to make the most of the seafront.
The design also allowed for a fusion of the outdoors and indoors – with a feeling of almost ‘stepping out on to the beach’ as you went outside. Internally, the scheme reflects the immediate views of the very blue sea and golden sands and greys and silvers were selected from the surrounding rocks. Through the centre of the building golden yellows flow from the entrance on the top floor to the kitchen living area on the middle level and the sun room on the ground floor.
