About Queen’s Park House

A Blend of Traditional Charm and Modern Elegance

The Queen’s Park House in London, designed by RISE Design Studio in 2022, redefines the Victorian terrace. This thoughtfully extended home melds timeless allure with cutting-edge style.

Inviting Interiors: A Nod to the Past, A Step into the Now

Stepping inside, the convergence of eras is striking. The entrance holds a classic Victorian vibe, enhanced by rich colors and an elegant, tufted settee. As light floods through the door, it illuminates book-filled shelves, which line the walls with stories and history.

Continuing into the heart of the home, the living room showcases a bespoke fireplace set against a tiled teal backdrop. This space invites relaxation, with a fresh yet cozy ambience that harmonizes with the contemporary furnishings.

Culinary Chic meets Urban Retreat

The kitchen, a true centerpiece, balances sophistication with practicality. Its dark tones contrast with warm wood finishes and sleek lines, emphasizing the home’s dual nature—chic for hosting yet perfectly intimate for daily living. The large central island acts as the hub for gatherings, surrounded by the pristine integration of storage and appliances.

As the journey through this urban oasis concludes, the dining area emerges as a fusion of indoor-outdoor living. Here, the lush garden is but a step away, providing a serene backdrop for the solid wood table that anchors the space, under a sculptural rooflight that ensures the room is awash with natural light, completing this home’s celebration of its historic foundations and modern spirit.
