Wrap House is an impressive property that has been recently re-designed by Edgley Design, nestled in a rural area of Godalming, Surrey, England, United Kingdom. Situated on 2.5 acres of gardens, this contemporary home features 4,890 square feet of living space with seven bedrooms and six-and-a-half bathrooms. Originally designed in the 1960s, the architects employed a more sustainable approach by upcycling the structure. This encompassed keeping the original distinctive silhouette intact, cladding it in insulation, then boldly wrapping it in stainless steel. The interior spaces are largely arranged over a single level with extensive garden views. Upon entry into the home, you are welcomed by a spacious entrance hall that leads into an open kitchen and reception area with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the gardens. Beyond this point is a whole wing encompassing the private zones of the home, with seven bedrooms (fours with en-suite bathrooms) and a family bathroom. The spacious master bedroom retreat offers a dressing room, en-suite bathroom with a freestanding tub and full height glazing with fabulous garden views. A utility room and wine cellar are also located on the lower level. Up to the second level, there is a living/bedroom suite with a bathroom. The property just recently awarded the winner in the Architects Journal Retrofit Awards 2014.

This sophisticated and stylish Victorian house has received a complete interior overhaul by decorator Katrina Phillips, located in Holland Park, London, England, United Kingdom. The homeowners requested a comfortable and evolving house that would reflect family living. The renovation enhanced the architectural peculiarities of the building, restoring interior design elements which included a large window and skylight at the rear of the home to bring in natural light. The idea of light helped to inspire the project, so polished surfaces, shiny materials, mirrors and crystal elements were incorporated into the design scheme. Wood flooring run through the main living areas, with the kitchen and dining areas reflecting a beautiful herringbone pattern. A mostly neutral color palette in the furnishings is dressed up by colorful paintings and decor. The furnishings are a mix of the owners current pieces and new acquisitions from antique and designer pieces, but timeless pieces with an artistic flair. The designer’s own studio created several of the lamps from old jars of olive oil, which can be seen in several of the rooms, and the dining table, creating a rustic chic appeal. Combining subtly glamorous textures with more simple ones creates a relaxed and contemporary ambiance. The end result is a design that manages to keep its English essence, yet evokes the style of the US East Coast.
