This Edwardian terraced house
was transformed by Andy Martin
Studio into colour-blocked spaces
that push the boundaries of feel-
good design. “The house was meant
to convey a feeling of fun, and not
an overly serious design as a family
home,” explains Andy.
Fondly referred to as the Chevron
House, in reference to the chevron
timber parquetry pattern on the
floors, the home’s traditional brown-brick
exterior belies the bold and beautiful world
that lies within.
The client was open to what some would
call brave design choices – his work as
a restaurateur, food critic and art collector
gave his style a more creative bent
than most – while the home’s location
in a creative West London district also
provided inspiration for the artistic plan.
02 The colourful interiors are a stark contrast to the traditional
Edwardian brown-brick exterior. When viewed from outside, the
ground floor emanates a glow extending from inside to out.
Andy’s work on numerous high-end
eateries around the globe, and his penchant
for innovative design that wows, made him
the perfect choice for bringing the owner’s
colourful family world to life. He says the
client’s brief for extensive use of colour was
embraced by his team, which employed
bright hues to fashion separation between
the large, open-plan areas.
