Bijou Beauty

Residential project

Situated in the picturesque Calder Valley, this charming Victorian manor house converted into a collection of exquisite apartments, showcases the architectural grandeur of the era, whilst offering a selection of unique and inviting living spaces.


The clients focus for the project was to reinstate and enhance historical features, to preserve the original character of the property, whilst making it suitable for modern day living. The impractical, closed off kitchen needed a complete redesign, incorporating storage solutions that optimise the functionality and usability, creating a space that feels open and connected.


With space at a premium, it was important that every inch was utilised effectively, with clearly divided zones to create a functional layout. The zoning enhances the efficiency of the space, whilst accommodating the needs for everyday use and social gatherings. The peninsular positioned central to the design, provides a versatile space for food preparation and cooking, with drinks fridge and snack drawers discreetly positioned on the back side, ensuring guests can access refreshments without disrupting the working zone. Cleverly positioned storage solutions such as the full height larder and bi-fold wall cabinets ensure every item has a place and is easily accessed from the task area.
The neutral palette of soft and earthy shades creates a sense of calm, echoed by the serene landscape. Materials such as the porcelain marble and oak veneer emulate the elegance of the Victorian era, whilst being durable and easy to maintain.
