SHORTLISTED KENSINGTON GARDENS PROJECT BY CASA FORMA EVERY ARCHITECT’S DREAM COME TRUE

June 27th, 2017

To be nominated for an award is what every architect dreams of, but to be shortlisted is every architect’s dream come true. Casa Forma’s Kensington Gardens project that was named by design et al in 2015, has been named as one of the frontrunners for the coveted Living Space – UK Award. By taking on a total refurbishment of the property inclusive of some reconfigurations in the structure, what was once a 3800 sq. ft. family home and property has become a celebration of style and a major accomplishment for the architects and interior designers at Casa Forma.

A Focal Point in the Heart of Kensington


What was once a ‘family property’ has become what is known as a lateral apartment which consists of a living area that is now quite large, four bedroom suites, a private den/study and an impressive art media chamber that is state of the art in design as well as functionality. Also included in their design is a Jacuzzi, steam room and even a dry sauna. The refurbishment turned a once ordinary abode into a high end luxury apartment and an award winning one at that!

A Look at the Underlying Scheme

When it comes to design, it is imperative that there is a scheme that brings everything together in a cohesive whole. In other words, each element blends nicely into the next so that in the end you have a well-functioning whole that not only works but looks just as good as it functions. This is the task of any architect. Function alone isn’t enough because disjointed elements can cause chaos in the look you are going after and design without function is futile. No one wants living space that doesn’t ‘work’ for them and so the two need to merge to complete the job.

In this project, Casa Forma sought to complement the modern shell with what is a predominant feature of the design group, an Art Deco appeal. The materials used were high end cladding and joinery for walls with furniture that featured natural stones and Japanese wood. To complete the picture, bespoke hand crafted chiselled mirrors with a finishing touch of hand painted gold leaf rounded out a look of beauty and luxury, a timeless perfection.


A Priceless View


The apartment is situated in such a way as to provide a breathtaking view of exquisitely landscaped gardens and a panoramic view of London. The client for whom the project was undertaken wanted to have a bar crafted so that it would highlight the family’s delicate ornaments of crystal. Since space was limited, the dining room table was designed to double as the bar which then became a divider between the living and dining areas. A remarkable accomplishment that not only brought all elements together from a design standpoint but with exceptional functionality.

With specially requested natural Japanese woods and design and functional features required by the clients, Casa Forma blended together the vision of the client with the extreme talent of their designers to complete a notable accomplishment well-deserving of its 2015 recognition on the design et al shortlist in the Living Space – UK Award. An honour well deserved.
