Gesamtkunstwerk. It’s about a totally integrated work of art, a holistic approach to design. Think about the architectural design of a building combined with interior design, furniture design, art and so on. Everything is considered for the whole. OK enough of the design lesson. Let’s look at this fab modern redesign, the latest residential project by Andy Martin Studio. It’s Andy’s family house in Notting Hill Gate. The existing 2 level mews house was redeveloped into a 4 level family home. A simple historical facade opens onto a space that it not expected. A space that is modern and considered, where solid plays against void, light against heavy, smooth against texture. But driving it all is the need for a family space, a workable albeit stylish home.
