The Woodlands project is an Edwardian red brick family home that has been designed by Madcow Interiors, located in Woodlands, a small area located in the borough of Hounslow, London. This restored home showcases an industrial rough luxe theme, mixed with various mid century modern touches.
Our brief was too restore, add period features and rebuild this North London Edwardian red brick family home. Using reclaimed materials and upcycling into bespoke designed furniture, our goal was to create a thoroughly industrial rough luxe theme, mixed with various mid century modern touches.
The Woodlands Project required us to plan and manage structural modification to the property, including the building of a new basement, rear extension, a 2 storey corner extension and a new loft conversion/extension. Once structurally complete, the interior design and bespoke styling began.
This was a huge project, which saw us working closely with a team of professionals and tradesmen. We custom designed and manufactured all the joinery and various bespoke (and upcycled) furniture; some of which are available to order. Other specialists were brought in who helped achieve the very specific finishes around the house.

London-based interior design firm Casa Forma has just sent us images of their latest project, One Hyde Park, the most exclusive address in the world, located in Knightsbridge, London, United Kingdom. Completed in December 2013, this stunning apartment reflects luxury, sophistication, and timeless interior design. The apartment is situated in a major residential and retail complex, with three retail units totaling 385,000 square feet and 86 residential properties. These hyper-luxury apartments range in price from around $4 million to $182 million USD.
When creating the interior design scheme for this 4,535 square foot apartment in One Hyde Park, Casa Forma’s focus was on practicality and functionality, whilst at the same time exuding the very best in bespoke luxury and elegance. The result is a sophisticated and timeless design, and a comfortable family home.
The immediate focus on entering the apartment is the long corridor leading to the main living space, with its magnificent views of Hyde Park itself.
Two features serve to particularly distinguish the corridor. Firstly, high-gloss sycamore panels add light and subtlety. And then, on the other side of the panel, an abstract map of the Hyde Park pathways – the bronze clasps and metalized panels and resin of which combine to create a subtle 3D effect.
The interior design of the main living space focuses on maximizing those incredible views of Hyde Park. Accents of beveled glass relief on mirrors framing all the joinery add an Art Deco touch to the room.
The modernist chandelier in the main living room is made from a collection of Brazilian rock crystals and bronze frame; the glow it emits visually increasing the ceiling height through its cut-outs. And at the entrance lobby, twin chandeliers designed with smoked quartz shards create a delicate quality of light, enhancing the ambiance of the space.
One of the four original bedrooms has been converted into a multi-function study room, which can also transform into a games room. The furniture is made from darkened solid Indian Rosewood in piano high gloss finish, and with the bespoke leather sofa able to convert into a large guest double-bed, this room can also easily be turned into a bedroom.
The introduction of a Swedish dry sauna in the en-suite bathroom linked to the study room was one of the most challenging aspects of this project. But thanks to Casa Forma’s strong architectural acumen, this small yet complex feature turned out to be an extremely successful addition to the property.
The powder room has been clad in silver & gold-leafed, treated with acid to create a tarnished effect for a more distressed and aged look.
In the dining room, the bronze profile and glass joinery is framed by a subtly backlit tortoise shell and tiger eye mosaic, while exquisitely
colored brown glass chandelier pendants hang over the dining table.

House in Wimbledon is a remodel and extension of a semi-detached Victorian house that was the vision of Stephen Fletcher Architects, situated in Wimbledon, London, England. The clients approached the architects in 2010 with the brief, looking to build-on the Victorian period features wherever possible and decorate, fit-out and furnish the house in a ‘period’ style.
The front of the property has largely been restored to its original condition following the removal of an unsightly ground floor bay window addition. Lower ground floor extensions have been constructed to the rear and the side, the former in matching London stock bricks with ‘Sky Frame’ sliding French doors, and the latter discreetly located beneath the side passageway.
The ground floor of the property has been opened-up as far as possible so as to maximize the illusion of space and daylight. The two original reception rooms have been combined to form a single, grand drawing room with a central opening leading to the entrance hall.
Victorian-style plaster cornices and ceiling roses, painted timber sash windows with folding shutters, painted timber architraves and moulded skirtings, and a new limestone fire surround have been installed in keeping with the period of the house. The Dinesen douglas fir floorboards have been laid on piped underfloor heating.
The original staircase from the ground floor up to the second floor has been restored; the lower ground floor stair has been relocated towards the rear of the house so as to allow for a more efficient use of space at that level. Its balustrade and handrail match the original.
The lower ground floor of the house has witnessed the greatest transformation. A series of low-ceiling rooms were knocked-together, excavated by a couple of feet, and extensions constructed to the side and rear.
A large open-plan space has thus been created. The kitchen is located at one end, and overlooks an enlarged lightwell with a new stone stair accessing the front garden; the dining area is located in the center of the space.
A large central island unit with a slate counter houses contains many of the kitchen appliances and cupboard space, as well as a casual dining area. The oven range, additional cabinetry and open shelves are located along the party wall.
New ‘Sky Frame’ sliding French doors fill the entire rear elevation of the space and open onto a new terrace and steps. The connection with the rear garden has thereby been hugely improved. A pair of antique French window shutters were adapted to form double doors to a small children’s playroom.
This roof terrace incorporates a large section of ‘walk-on’ glazing, which admits plenty of daylight and sunlight to the area below.
A spacious master suite has been created by connecting the two principal first floor rooms via a new opening with folding doors. This view is looking from the dressing room, at the front of the house, towards the bedroom at the rear.
A freestanding zinc bath on slate tiling has been installed in front of the master dressing room window; the shower room is located off this area. A log-burning stove has been installed within the original firebox.

This recently completed mixed-use project is a five storey brick clad building marking the corner of Orsman Road and Whitmore Road, designed by Trevor Horne Architects in London, England. The mixed-use scheme houses studios for artists and architects on the ground and first floors, with three floors of spacious residential apartments sitting above. It is a simple framed structure reflecting the neighbouring warehouse buildings. A concrete Cobiax system allows for large spanning floor slabs with few internal columns, giving great flexibility for layouts.
There are six generous apartments, each with 3m high ceilings and ample living areas. Some materials expressed in the spaces are exposed concrete soffits, waxed oak flooring and basalt stone. The building has a tripartite composition of base, middle and top. Its volume is sculpted to respond to its urban location, marking the corner at its highest points, with balconies cut into the mass, lining through with neighboring cornices and stepping down to form a private courtyard to its two storey neighbor.
