Kew House / John Wardle Architects

This refurbishment of an architect’s own home completely remodels the spaces allowing for the way the clients live now and will live into the future. The opportunity was to design spaces for socialising and for retreat; to tailor spaces for specific objects of importance, beauty and meaning. The refurbishment highlights unique moments of finely designed and crafted joinery and furniture and celebrates the value of the hand made. Using timber as the primary material and neutral tones throughout allows the client’s extensive art collection to add colour, pattern and texture at various locations to reflect individuality and surprise.
