Light Chevron Parquet Forms A Base For A Bold Scheme

Last year Michaelis Boyd architects completed a total refurbishment of a disused mews house in Notting Hill transforming it into a creative haven reflecting the energetic personality of its owners. The brief was a multifunctioning home serving as a relaxing retreat, creative workspace and entertaining venue, truly coming into its own during the lockdown.

The layout was completely re-worked with roof lights and internal Crittall windows letting in natural light. The eye-catching burnt red staircase made from perforated steel, a collaboration between Michaelis Boyd and Diapo, serves as a focal point while letting the light through from above. The pale, natural Strata Hurst timber flooring furthermore makes the most of the new bright aspect of the space.

The light chevron parquet flooring adds a dynamic element and flows continuously through to the bespoke kitchen by DeVol. The neutral tones of the oak timber serve as a calm foundation, while the contrasting blue cabinets with copper worktops and splashback add further colourful elements.

HURST Chevron library

The library and workspace make the most of the high ceiling with top to bottom shelving accessible via a bespoke steel mezzanine with a spiral staircase. The bold red of the back wall echoes the red staircase of the entrance while the chevron floor adds pattern and bounces off light from the large windows.
