Collaboration with AR Architecture
Primrose Hill, London
A collaborative project between AR Architecture and Pascoe Interiors Ltd.
Alexander Rakita of AR Architure was responsible for the innovative re-design, that saw a once dark property consisting of a series of small split level spaces emerge as a renewed, spacious home flooded with light. The design was recognised at the UK Property Awards, 2015, at which AR Architecture won a 5* Award for this project.
When it came time to look for a professional interior design partner who would be able to source, supply and install the interior FF&E elements to the his & the Clients brief, Alexander called upon Pascoe Interiors. Clare was able to draw upon her extensive supply chain and network of traders to install the ash flooring, bespoke ash joinery, Molten Kitchen and window treatments to the Client and Architects exacting standards. Pascoe Interiors worked closely with the Architect and his team of builders, collaborating with each other to ensure a smooth running and successful project.
Clare was then asked to go on to furnish and style the property to show the full potential of the newly shaped interior spaces to market the property for rent. This also posed an opportunity for the Client and AR Architecture to see the property stylishly furnished, fully realising their vision for the house.
The vintage, sometimes eclectic, pieces of furniture and décor perfectly matched AR Architecture’s minimalist spaces by sticking to a simple palette of ash surfaces on the floors, stairs, doors and built in furniture; white walls and ceilings; and the natural light penetrating the house. The selected vintage furniture was specifically sourced from the 60s era to match the time when the house was originally built. These were interspersed with contemporary elements, as is typical with Clare’s signature mid-century contemporary style, to prevent the scheme from looking staged or slavishly vintage.
