«It is twenty three years ago since I set up my own studio»
It is twenty three years ago since I set up my own studio. I thought that it might be fun to have a look back at some of my early projects and see how styles have changed. Here is the first one.
This early project does look quite grand but is in fact only a 60 square metre flat. It is on the first floor of an early Victorian terraced House in Bayswater which had been a council flat since the war and was stripped of all its architectural details.
Inspired by the Regency and with the classical knowledge that I gained from studying with the Prince of Wales Institute of Architecture, I put the flat back to how it should have been. I concealed daily requirements so that it looked like the rooms were part of a whole house.
I had some fun with it while staying to period, the colours are all correct but slightly clashed and the furniture is all Regency style but from different periods and countries. The result is quite playful and it could be because its only a pier de tere. Having seen the flat recently, after all these years, nothing has changed.
