Colour zap

Posted on Wed, 9 Nov 2011 by midcenturyjo

The latest from award winning design firm Andy Martin Architects. Chevron House, West London. “Inspired by the architecture of the existing elegantly proportioned spaces, the design sets out to exaggerate, by scaling the space by removing walls, and attaching new space to create a large Edwardian warehouse on each of the three levels. The ground floor, the public level is essentially one space which is divided only by the use of colour and material. On the second and third levels, the private floors, bedrooms merge into bathrooms and visa versa. The rear of the property has new extensions off both the living and kitchen reaching into the garden to absorb the light from the south. The client’s brief to use colour extensively was applied in such that the walls and ceilings are left light in colour (off white) and that only elements or interventions (joinery etc) would be strongly coloured giving the house a lighter atmosphere with greater sense of perspective.” Colour. OMG colour! It’s like a zing from tingly fruit candies, the zap from sherbert powder. I think I need a green bathroom!

Wow what a happy home! The colours really hit the mark. I *love* the blue shelves – what a hue!
