Dreaming of a perfect home is nowadays so globally inspiring, that we draw inspiration from every corner of the world. Today’s dream home comes from the portfolio of local architecture and interior design studio SHH and occupies an urban lot in west London. The West London House is a revived single-family home that combines the possibilities of modern architecture with classic lines that integrate it in its existing environment.
Rising five stories in the air, the contemporary house displays a retained front façade while the interiors have been designed to suit a modern lifestyle in which the family enjoys both social and private spaces. No less than seven bedrooms provide the family with comfort. Sophisticated and elegant, sometimes deeply masculine in details or glamorous in design lines, today’s dream home might inspire you to go bolder on your projects and “risk” living in heaven.
Designers of SHH tell us the story of this home and how it ended up looking so inspiring: “An original Victorian property on the site had been split into four flats in the post-war period, which the current owner had purchased piecemeal over time, before coming to SHH with a vision of converting the entire property into a single, luxury family home, based on the principle of lateral living, with high ceilings and extensive living spaces, as well as a very generous pool and leisure complex below ground, to include a spa, sauna, steam room, gym, bar area, changing rooms, toilets, walk-in wine cellar, playroom and cinema/media room.” And make no mistake about it: this stunning home boasts the largest pool in the area, measuring 14m x 4.5m.
