Interior architecture and design practice Mamedovaite crafts environments with human interaction as its ethos - guided by a belief that how spaces make us feel is as important as how they look.

Mamedovaite was asked to renovate a modest annexe, built initially as a coach house at the end of a late-Victorian terraced property. Through this project, they transformed it into a bijou self-contained residence.

The building was gutted to bare brick, a rear extension was added, and the space was completely reconfigured. With no real feature present, they needed to be recreated. All the doors and windows, for example, were designed sympathetically to look as if they had always been a part of the house.

A neutral palette runs through the home to create a cohesive, calm and elegant scheme. Texture plays an important factor in the design: band-sawn oak, natural jute, velvet, linen, and bronze fittings - all layered to create a refined and welcoming space.

Mamedovaite chose the brown-grey Tate Bute oak floor, with its distinctive saw band marks in a rustic grade, providing character, texture, and a natural look.
