Among the mile-wide rolling cornfields on Österlen is Eva and Kristian’s four-lane farm. Creating a cozy and relaxed place to be able to gather the whole family was one of the goals of the renovation – which required both genuine understanding and a large dose of feeling for everything to be right. It looks stylish and almost modern, without in any way sticking out or making a fuss of itself. Rather, it blends in perfectly, but the farm was also built in the middle of the 19th century.

Indie & Co.’s client, who had recently purchased this gorgeous Victorian property, decided to reconfigure the building into one rental flat, a home home office/ guest flat and a maisonette for herself. Working alongside her architectural team, designers were commissioned to design the scheme and specify the furniture, fixtures and fittings in a way that would tie all the areas of this unique layout together. Using a beautiful grey terrazzo in the kitchen and bathrooms gives continuity, as well as the beautiful golden oak that acts as a consistent theme through the space, coupled with accents of brass and copper to bring a sense of warmth and luxury. They selected a soft blue for the walls which serves as the backdrop to a unique wall sculpture inspired by nearby Hampstead Heath by Kaori Tatebayashi. The soft shades combined with the grain of natural timber exudes a serene calm, while carefully…

Let that light in! A beautifully lit ground floor wrap around extension and internal refurbishment to a dark a fragmented period property. The brief was to develop an open plan space that had a flow around the ground floor of the property. The works would need to open up a dark and disconnected ground floor in to one that allows the family to use all the spaces throughout the day and evening. It took a lot of effort from the clients and Iguana Architects to develop an interior design language that met their requirements and the clients were absolutely fantastic with their choices of finishes and lighting. Whilst it was a challenging project, it was equally satisfying seeing the project come to life. Its now a pleasure to go over and see the space, how happy the clients are and what a difference it has made to their life. Photography…
