SHH’s client purchased an existing property near the Devil’s Punchbowl area in Surrey, set in its own vale and surrounded by 40 acres of private land, including a lake, stream, wooded areas and formal gardens. SHH was commissioned to refurbish the entire property and add a 2,858 sq ft rear extension to improve the interior proportions of the rooms. The commission also included the design of a new-build, 3-bed house in the grounds of the property for additional guest accommodation. Terracing to the rear was greatly extended and the house’s indoor pool extended by a further seven metres. SHH’s interiors team created a new light and airy interior scheme, using punchy colours and furniture to build on a neutral base palette of natural stone and light-coloured timbers. The interior furnishings scheme was created by Aileen Rodriguez of Rodriguez Interiors.
