A project located between the North Downs and the Surrey Hills we were privileged to be set the task of designing and fabricating five rooms throughout this magnificent Grade II listed farmhouse. The client, understandably, wanted almost nothing but natural wood finishes so the material palette was simple…. solid wood, veneers and lots of reclaimed wood.
The study was our favourite. Buckets of storage, with drawers galore and a satisfying transition from wrap round desk to built in storage this project came together just as weer all hoped. Clad almost head to toe in our trademark reclaimed barn wood with acid etched patinated detailing, lush racing green leather clad worktop and oak veneered internal carcasses and drawers. A few special features include integrated cable tidies, subtle LED light switches, bespoke steel filing cabinet and steel handles system employed throughout bring added user enjoyment. The reclaimed wood doors and drawer fronts are made from 3 layer reclaimed wood panels and the floating shelves are wrapped Barn wood with recessed LED strip lights.
The laundry room wardrobe is a burst of colour with it’s natural honey coloured reclaimed wood doors and pink walls. For the the doors and panelling in this room we knocked the texture level knocked down a peg by applying so extra sanding to help out client with every day usage. Recessed steel handles and concrete worktop look in this room gives this a classic Brandler London style. The internals we all a combination of Cedar veneers and solid wood slatted shelving.
The pool house is another classic Brandler London job. This time with heavy weathered solid wood floating shelves and a large cabinet sat on the worktop with laser cut steel venting for our clients ice machine to ensure all party guests have appropriately chilled drinks throughout.
We fitted furniture in a few other spaces around the house including the Cloakroom vanity which was made from a stunning slab of Elm wood installed as a floating worktop with stunning shell sink set a top.
The client installed some other fantastic joinery and furniture around the house with some beautiful reclaimed wood floors, kitchen by Plain English and wardrobes… though these were supplied by others. The use of colour and texture got noticed by The Times who did a feature on the designer Ana Engelhorn.
A big thank you to our very collaborative client and talented designer Ana Engelhorn who was insightful, decisive, bold and generally an absolute pleasure to work with as well as her brilliant project manager Julie Shuttle who helped pull it all together. We would also like to credit to her fantastic photographer Paul Massey who supplied the part of the photography (everything without a Brandler London logo) on display here.
