INSIGHT

A painter must think of everything he sees as being there entirely for his own use and pleasure.

 
 
Lucian Freud
 

Some projects are without comparison, and none epitomises this more than an apartment in Holland Park, previously used as a studio by a renowned British painter. Purchased by our client, who had an avid interest in British art, this modest-sized property was transformed from a careworn painter’s studio into a wonderful living space entirely respectful of its past incarnation.

Original features such as the oil paint splattered wooden floorboards were retained in respect of the original artist’s studio from the 1960s. Our brief was to design a vintage hi-fi audio system and a concealed projector to match the interior – one that encapsulated a bohemian feeling of the late ’60s and early ’70s. 

This demanded a solution that was more understated chic than high-tech. It allowed us to indulge in our love of design, installing loudspeakers that were original BBC monitors with accompanying record turntable so our client could play his extensive vinyl collection.
