Huge Architects have recently completed the interior design and installation of a showhouse on Catharine Street. The final phase of the Philharmonic Rise project is now under way with 10 more Georgian townhouses currently being refurbished, plot 4 was completed this month and we were appointed by the client to turn it into a Showhouse.
The brief was to restore the building to its original use a single occupancy dwelling and develop an interior design scheme for a four bedroom house. Internally the building was stripped out of all internal partitions which were introduced under the previous ownership. Our approach was to retain as many of the original features as possible, thankfully most of the existing staircases were still present, however, in order to achieve extra height, new balusters needed to be added. The handrails were repaired and, where necessary, new sections were manufactured using state of the art 5 axis CNC router to match the existing perfectly.
