This is the jacuzzi at our East Sheen Pool House project, looking back across the swimming pool towards the main house.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The jacuzzi is designed to be partially enclosed with a cantilevered armourcoat roof and includes natural cedar cladding to the surrounds. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Similarly to the sauna, we included a picture window to frame the landscaping and foliage towards the back of the garden.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
‘Control 4’ automated feature lighting has been installed in and around the building and landscaping to provide a dramatic atmosphere at night. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This is the sauna at our East Sheen Pool House project. We designed the back of the sauna with a full width+height triple glazed picture window which frames the landscaping and foliage towards the back of the garden.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
‘Control 4’ automated feature lighting has been installed amongst the planting to make a dramatic atmosphere at night. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Each material in our East Dulwich kitchen extension was selected for its own unique natural quality, look and feel.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The result gives a calming sense of warmth and tactility to the space through a balance of the organic and the engineered. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The outside space of our West Norwood project was just as important to design as the inside space. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We can't wait to see it in the spring to see the foliage growing up and over the bespoke pergola - the perfect natural solar shade. Roll on the summer!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The marble cuts of our East Dulwich project were designed to make the building feel monolithic and heavy, portraying the idea of the two stone variants being compressed together, under immense pressure over long periods of time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The marble has been mitred at the door and window reveals, each section digitally cut for very precise 90 degree junctions between the individual marble pieces. This allows the cladding and critically the cut lines to seamlessly wrap themselves inside and outside the building through the glazing frames.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
