About Malvern House
Blending Heritage with Modernity at Malvern House
Malvern House expertly merges its heritage charm with a modern extension. The new addition complements the original structure while clearly showcasing its modernity. The designers carefully linked the old and new sections by weaving in traditional details, creating a unified space.
Crafting a Seamless Design Transition
They also skillfully integrated modern features into the heritage section, such as custom steel and marble handles on hall doors and brass joinery in the bathroom. Furthermore, a thoughtfully designed transition point in the hallway, marked by glazed doors, mirrors the scale of the custom rear doors.
Emphasizing Timeless Elegance with Luxurious Materials
The team chose a luxurious material palette for its timeless quality. They particularly focused on warm, natural materials like timber and marble. Each marble slab stands as a unique piece of art, with the oversized Carrara marble on the rear bench wall offering both functionality and visual splendor.
