Edwardian apartment refurbishment

A refurbishment of an apartment in an Edwardian mansion block. The interior design was inspired by the owner’s love of furniture in the Biedermeier style and would provide a backdrop for her modern art collection.

The internal spaces have unusually high ceilings with large windows with paired-back detailing. We were able to open up walls, providing a better flow between spaces flooding the principle rooms with natural light.

The movement started after the defeat of Napoleon in 1815 and enjoyed a resurgence in the early twentieth century. Its subtle appeal lies in clean lines, simplicity, and minimal ornamentation. The Biedermeier aesthetic influenced Art Nouveau, Bauhaus, and 20th-century architecture.
