Eaton Square, Belgravia is probably, along with nearby Belgrave Square, the most exclusive address in the world.
“We had just finished an interior design project for a client in Marbella,” says Jason Harris, (CEO & Creative Director at UDesign), “and they were so impressed with the work they asked us if we could come and look at one of their London properties. We were impressed too when we saw it.”
The listed property, built in the 1830’s, is huge: six floors with formal and family lounges, formal dining room, separate staff and family staircases and a lift. It has nine bedrooms on the upper floors, a basement for spa and entertainment, and ample staff quarters. So what exactly was the brief? Brief, as it turned out. “It was to have a contemporary feel but to respect the period features and inherent character of the building. After this short brief they left us to it.”
Jason was not fazed by the challenge of history and the change of location. “It is a million miles away from the contemporary Mediterranean style that UDesign are known for,” he says, “but good design is good design. The principal is the same, regardless of style.” Read more about this project on our blog.
