design et al are delighted to announce that Cochrane Design have been shortlisted for a Residential £2.5-5 Million (Project by Value) Award in The International Design and Architecture Awards 2016
This end of terrace house in the heart of London’s Chelsea’s design quarter has been completely reconfigured. The previous layout was very traditional and did not utilise the space efficiently therefore meaning that it was not conducive to modern living.The interior and architectural designers Cochrane Design were commissioned to create a family home that was a seamless blend of contemporary luxury with timeless elegance. Being able to entertain large groups of friends and family in an open plan living space was paramount to the brief.
From the exterior the scale of the property belies it’s modern open plan interior that balances bespoke luxury with a practical use of the space. On entry you are met with a reception and dining area that is bathed in natural light as the open plan design complete with mezzanine allows for a double height wall of windows that create a very modern aesthetic. The colour palette used throughout is a selection of calming greys that allows the warmth of the various wood finishes to take centre stage. A bold charcoal black accentuates the double height doors, drawing your eye to the art deco chandeliers.
The luxurious kitchen by Cochrane Design uses Macassar bark with deep grey marble worktops and state of the art appliances with sculptural legs that gracefully support the Island in wenge and chrome creating a timeless blend. The sophisticated craftsmanship is carefully highlighted by a layered lighting scheme befitting this bold kitchen. The continuity of grain across all the cupboards from floor to ceiling is a striking statement; a fine chrome trim set flush into the wood defines the unit’s framework. With zoned areas for breakfast and more formal dining as well as a casual seating area.
