"My scheme challenges the common perception of wool. Rather than just "country" and "cosy", wool can also be urban and contemporary without losing any of its warmth. I have combined sleek lines with bold colours, drawing from the sartorial tradition of my home country Italy and the UK."
A deceptively serene scheme which saw this Grade I listed building going through a complete overhaul. Fitted with the latest technology behind walls, the house is an ideally quiet backdrop to the owners bold contemporary art collection.
A husband and wife with a wealth of differing opinions and collectables but a limited budget to renovate their flat. The result is a colorful exercise in eccletism and diplomacy, where family heirlooms meet contemporary wallpaper. Isn't this the recipe behind any successful marriage?
A tired and conventional Edwardian mansion flat in the heart of Kensington, complete with dilapidated studio, is brought back to life, and the 21st century, with a radical renovation. What felt like a long and narrow corridor with rooms leading off it, is now a bright and welcoming family home with a great feeling of space.
South London home
A house stuck in the 80’s but in the perfect location is utterly transformed with a loft extension and a complete refurbishment. Clients are a young family relocating from New York with clear vision but limited budget. The resulting space is open, bright with a certain Scandi feel and the occasional pop of colour. Most importantly, it is now family friendly without missing out on style.

A bright but soulless flat in Kensington gets a makeover to suit better the personality of its new owners. The architecture of the pied-à-terre, very geometric and rational, is softened by the use of curves, colour and luxurious fabrics. Stunning views over London are beautifully framed with soft draping. Bold colours, vintage furnishing and whimsical touches lighten the mood.
A basement floor of an Edwardian villa in Parsons Green in need of a complete revamp. The brief was complex: a multitasking space (tv room for the family, therapy room for reflexology clients) that shouldn’t feel utilitarian, storage, colour and more storage plus the added challenge of thick foundations surfacing around the rooms. The answer was designing bespoke joinery that would conceal the unsightly structure and allow the use every inch of space available. The client calls it her zen space now - mission accomplished.
The task was to design the new French office for a multinational pharmaceutical company, combining high efficiency with high design credentials. As well as space planning for a workforce of 170 employees, the project involved designing reception, meeting rooms and break out areas.
