When it comes to discussing a new project with clients, often how to maximise the natural light into a house is often one of our first consideration. Either in a new build or a house refurbishment, a skylight is the perfect mesmerising feature to fan out and illuminate a stylish living space with natural soft shades.
Whether running a business from home or having some flexibility for home working, a dedicated workspace or room is becoming for our residential clients more and more crucial for preserving their precious boundaries between work and family lifestyle.
On a canvas wall art, I remember once reading something like Travel (noun). The only thing you buy that makes you richer. I guess this is something we can all agree on. This must be the reason more and more of our clients share with us their travel memories and stories when it comes to describing their "dream home". They fall in love with the atmosphere of a place and these memories still resonate, many years later.
We recently met Christine Wilkie, Award-winning Buckinghamshire-based garden designer and we had a chat with her about the different specialism for designing the outdoor home space and how to adopt clever installations and elegant features for a stunning effect. Christine gave us her valuable insights on the latest trends and a top list of priorities to consider when embarking on a garden design project. Truly inspirational for us as architects and useful for property owners!
