Our clients bought the top floor of the world-renowned former pottery and brewery as an empty shell. We were commissioned to create a stylish, contemporary coastal retreat. Our brief included every aspect of the design, from spatial planning and electrical and lighting through to finishing touches such as soft furnishings. The project was particularly challenging given the sheer volume of the space, the number of beams that span the property and its listed status. We played to the industrial heritage of the building combining natural materials with contemporary furniture, lighting and accessories. Stark and deliberate contrasts were created between the exposed stone walls and gnarled beams against slick, stylish kitchen cabinetry and upholstery. The overall feel is luxurious and contemporary but equally relaxed and welcoming.
