This project’s interior solutions were inspired by its location. Set on a picturesque lake in the suburbs of Manchester, the UK, the house was instantly seen by us as a continuation of its beautiful surroundings.
The materials here play the main role. Each surface asks for a touch, with a combination of such complex textures as plaster, travertine, rough metal and silky wood giving the interior a unique feel on both visual and kinesthetic levels.
The palette evokes memories of a sandy beach, but not under a scorching sun, but rather on an autumn day, where the sea gives a pleasant feeling of solitude, and the colors are less garish, but the hues are deeper. We wanted the interior to present a haven from the often-gloomy weather outside, so we filled the space with soft and warm local light and sensual art objects.
The owners are art-lovers who love to entertain guests, so they needed a truly unique space. Forinstance, we created a specially designated room for making drinks, where the hosts could spend time in a chat with a small group of special guests.
