Case study: Filmer Mews
September 3, 2019
Fulham, SW6, London.
Interior Designer: Tailored Living Interiors.
Architect: Faris K Associates.
Located in the affluent and desirable Munster Village area of Fulham, Filmer Mews consists of nine luxury apartments in a secluded attractively cobbled courtyard. Predominantly built in the early 1900’s, the period mews houses benefit from a distinctive character and close proximity to an array of boutique shops, cafes and restaurants. The development offers high class flexible accommodation in a mews style. Our brief was to design and install nine designer-inspired kitchens to a high specification, with a stylish, contemporary finish to suit modern living.
The initial design was critical to maximise the use of space for the unique apartment floorplans within the period building. As a result, the architect designed an open-plan layout, with thoughtfully designed spaces to complement modern living and provide a seamless flow to the living area. The cohesive style is based upon an urban and industrial chic design to provide a clean and contemporary look.
The choice of custom-made handle-less cabinets offer a seamless and sleek design, with the use of a two-tone approach. Working closely with the interior design agency, Tailored Living Interiors, we selected Cosmos Grau cabinet doors combined with a wood effect laminate, to provide a blend of tone and texture.
Each apartment features either a bespoke island unit or breakfast bar area to offer flexible and practical dining options. The use of custom-made cabinets delivers a range of smart storage options to capitalise the use of space. Our expert joiners also created open shelving on the island units to display stylish kitchen accessories and an innovative ‘feature wall’ which conceals a secret door to further hidden storage.
To add a touch of luxury the design incorporates marble-effect quartz worktops with matching splashbacks. While the choice of black appliances, accessories and statement lighting add a bold design feature to complete the look.
Each kitchen benefits from a range of high-quality and energy efficient integrated appliances by Bosch with an induction hob, built-in single oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and extraction unit. A Franke Sirius sink and Active tap completed the all-black design effect.
In addition, we also commissioned a local joinery to manufacture dining tables in two of the apartments using Xylocleaf Primo Fiore, a leather-effect high-pressure laminate. Designed as an extension to the respective kitchen islands, this design feature was both innovative and ergonomic.
All the kitchens feature clean, neutral tones to create a sophisticated, yet comfortable and welcoming environment. All of which provides a stylish and flexible space to cook and share with friends in the new stunning Filmer Mews development.
