Albero Luxury Seaside Retreat, 2016

  • Client Intro

As our first holiday let project in the UK, this project will always hold a special place in our hearts. The client runs a number of hospitality businesses in the area and this old family home of his was to be converted into a luxury holiday let.

  • Scope/Client Brief

We needed to literally rip out everything. Nothing stayed – gone was the old kitchen, nasty shower room, as super-dated finishes! Once we could see what we were working with, we agreed with the client’s vision of this being the absolute perfect guest home – with careful planning, we could turn an old outdoor space into a patio and work enough sleeping space in to fit eight people.

  • Challenges

Untouched since the sixties, this past childhood home of the owner resembled a ski chalet or a sauna with nasty wood panelling throughout, a completely outdated kitchen, and a disastrous family bathroom. Everything had to go!

  • Interior Design Solution

This bright and welcoming seaside duplex has won everyone’s hearts over, including the judges at the International Property Awards! We created a beautiful, soft, coastal theme to deliberately stay away from clichéd beach schemes, and the result is a gorgeous, stylish, and welcoming apartment. There are plenty of features that make you smile, like the feature wallpaper in the kitchen and the pebble tiles in the jacuzzi equipped bathroom. The bedrooms are spacious and airy, and a new sun set spot welcomes you for an afternoon drink outside, where a new enclosed balcony area was created.
