An odd house in Notting Hill

Posted on Fri, 26 Feb 2016 by KiM

Here is another project by architect Annabel Karim Kassar I wanted to share. This time while also eclectic, it is much more….random. While I don’t understand most of this, I admire the creativity. At first glance, Notting Hill House’s interior is a project in which we employed an architectural reading with regard to the structure of the space. Starting at the entrance, an architectural language, almost a line, is felt and perceived. It travels through the space and guides the eye, commencing from the kohl parquet flooring of the ground floor, to the simple contour of the balustrade lining the staircase, to a single window with an intricately worked out wooden frame overlooking a spectacular London view. A closer look reveals details or elements that are characteristic of Annabel Karim Kassar’s trademark style, which is to combine different material, patterns, textures and textiles. Notting Hill house’s interior is a blend of North African and modern design and is also influenced by Victorian interiors in which one can find collections of trinkets and travel items picked up on trips, the house gathers eclectic furniture pieces rendering the spaces both spectacular and bold.

I for one love it. And not just for having for the most over-the-top toilet EVER!

Axie says:

Ha! I didn't even notice that was a toilet! More like a throne 🙂

Carol says:

Yes the toilet is spectacular, but the best thing for was the courtyard, nice and private.

Matt says:

Interesting. The throne toilet is indeed fabulous, but I find the lack of privacy and the openess of the main floor disturbing.

Aiza says:

Looks interesting! I love the white tulip side tables… Where are they from?!
