For those who are into the colour blue, this one is FOR YOU! Situated on the edge of a leafy garden square in Holland park, the Blue House is a Grade II listed Georgian, four storey, end of terrace house. Although almost in a state of ruin, the house had undeniable potential and Studio Indigo set about resurrecting it to its former glory. It had the characteristics of an archetypal London Georgian property – constructed of typical London stock brick on a stucco ground floor, with sash windows and a butterfly roof concealed behind a parapet wall. Many of the original internal architectural features had been lost and replaced with pseudo gothic features. The original details which did remain were heavily damaged or obscured by many layers of paint work. The architectural challenge was to adapt the original layout with respect to its architectural heritage, whilst embracing contemporary living and maximising space in an exceptionally narrow house. Studio Indigo utilised clean lines and capitalised on the natural light while embracing open plan living. A contemporary glass ‘box’ extension was added to the rear, providing additional lateral living space and an abundance of natural light. The interior style is bold and vibrant in character, an eclectic mix of old and new, raw yet refined, mirroring the client’s exquisite taste. The colour blue, a favourite of the client, runs throughout the house as a unifying theme, varying in tone and shade from room to room.
