Monatgue is a Victorian terrace house in Richmond, London.
The design brief for the project was to bring back the original heritage of the house, whilst maximizing space for a large growing family. To this end, our approach centred on creating an open expanse of space at the rear of the house, while maintaining more intimate areas at the front and above ground.
The heritage rebuild project involved a full demolition of the existing house, retaining the front façade and a re-building to include a new subterranean basement extension below the entire ground floor and garden. There is also a new loft extension and side return that maximises the overall footprint above ground.
Internal vertical light-wells connect the basement extension to the ground floor providing a visual and acoustic connection.
Dark wood paneling, hand-sawn French chevron flooring and reclaimed Italian marble add luxury to the interior.
The kitchen was designed in collaboration with MannMade London with units made from matt white sprayed lacquer and metal edging. The island has a marble top with oak clad units below.
Each floor of the house was completely reconfigured to embrace a new and contemporary layout throughout.
A simple landscape design was conceived with hard surfaces that link the open-plan kitchen and dining area.
Minimal external features allow the indoor and outdoor spaces to visually and functionally connect.
Bespoke furniture was integral to our a holistic design approach.
Custom-made pieces appear throughout the house including handmade shelving units and sideboard cabinets made of ash and brass. All furniture was designed and made by MannMade London.
