In the heart of the alternative culture of London’s Camden town, these former Monty Python film studios were completely renovated into a family home as well as the studio of a fashion designer.
The series of buildings (totaling more than 3000 m2) were divided into various living and work spaces, including a design studio, a separate projection room, inner courtyard, several bedrooms and entertainment rooms. The buildings were elegantly joined by a glazed bridge.
Arriving via a discreet entrance and a long path of nature, you are welcomed into the main living room with its 5 meter high ceilings . The addition of an enormous skylight and the lush potted plants help to blur the lines between interior and exterior. Everything here is over-scaled but still welcoming and warm thanks to the contrast of mass produced pieces from the industrial area cohabitating with luxurious and soft elements like a large fur rug , golden murano lamps or a brass fireplace.
Earthy tones, with the odd colorful surprise makes it a place you want to travel deeper into. In the other rooms the same mélange of humble industrial materials and luxurious and soft textures like cashmere curtains create a balance of intimacy and harmony. A fuchsia Aldo Tura table or a series of 70s orange Murano pendants bring a sense of joy to your travels.
These contrasts of roughness and chic within the gigantic yet intimate spaces encourages self reflection and inspiration for the creative inhabitants
