Luxury living room Knighstbridge

Project • By GBG Building Services LtdPrivate Houses


Our UHNI client purchased a grand 600 square metre maisonette in Cadogan Square, Knighstbrige, which is one of the most desirable luxury residential addresses in London. It was a Grade II listed building that required significant renovation works.  The area of Cadogan Garden is known for its exclusivity and noble red-brick buildings. The square was built around the 1870s to 1880s, mostly on the grounds of the well known Prince's Club. The main first floor of this Grade listed apartment was spread over two fronts, with an outstanding full view overlooking the Cadogan Garden Square through 6 historic shuttered double French doors. The client also purchased a basement flat that had been unrenovated for over 50 years. The intention was to... More

Dutch Sky Wallpaper

The Dutch sky which has inspired so many artists through the centuries was the starting point of this series. Choosing the ever changing patterns of the Dutch skies from our own collection of photos as inspiration, we have layered these images with details from antique etchings from The Netherlands. The Dutch Sky wallpaper comes in three designs: Dusk-Violet, Storm-Grey and Summer-Blue, and represents a personal, evocative homage to the place that inspired it.

Solvallagata 68

"Solvallagata68" is a residential project commissioned by a very friendly and social family who is used to host friends and relatives on a daily basis. For this reason the design concept’s goal was to create a spacious open-plan living area encouraging family members and their guests to spend time together. In order to reach the client’s needs it was necessary to demolish part of the wall, which divided the kitchen and the living room, drastically changing the old layout.The custom-made kitchen is developed along the three perimetral walls in order to optimize the room’s layout and create an empty area in the middle of the room, necessary to facilitate dense people flows. The white Corian countertop faces a wide window that b...

Snow Shed House

The Snow Shed House was designed as a place of solace and escape; a tool to reengage with the natural environment. Modest dimension on the street facade gives way to grand verticality on the downhill side, providing expansive views of the nearby mountain ranges. The building form is a tightly-wrapped, robustly-insulated box cloaked with a thin, refined roof line that cascades down to the ground to provide privacy screening of the facade from the adjacent access road. The main living level, containing living, dining and cooking areas as well as a guest suite, is stacked atop a garage and utility floor. A master suite occupies the third floor and overlooks the floor below. More

The MC03 project is our third renovation in the iconic Marina City complex in Chicago designed by Bertrand Goldberg. Throughout the years, many residential units in the complex have suffered from renovations that compromise the original spaces and intent of the architect. For this project, we referenced the design template developed during MC02 to return units to their original spatial and material condition while updating all its system to current comfort standards. Similarly to MC01 and MC02, our previous projects in the building, MC03 reintroduces a spatial clarity to the unit, prioritizing key aspects of the original design by Goldberg such as its structure and minimizing the color and material palette. The unit is brough...

The MC01 project is a renovation of a one-bedroom unit in the iconic Marina City complex (1959–1967) in Chicago designed by Bertrand Goldberg. Previously renovated by a former owner, the unit had been divided into a series of disconnected spaces with multiple materials and finishes that had diminished the integrity of the original space. Our project reintroduces a spatial clarity to the unit, reorganizing the spaces and minimizing the colors and materials used, as well as building upon key aspects of the original design by Goldberg such as its structure. The unit is organized along a reconfigured wall that runs from the entrance until the balcony. The wall conceals closets and doors, allowing the bathroom and bedroom to be connect... More

Nirvana Home

There are no words to define the concept of Nirvana, a mental state with effects in the physical and spiritual planes. This makes it difficult to explain and only those who practice meditation can understand how far they are from reaching it. These thoughts led us to name this project Nirvana. Words like “house”, “villa”, or “palace” fail to represent the scale of the building, its materialisation, or its spatial order. We prefer the term “home”. The features of a home are not physical, but rather emotional and affective, and Nirvana Home has been designed and built to satisfy the needs of the inhabitants in these terms. This home is also a reflection of the culture within which it is developed. In this sense, its point of contact with the... More
