Renowned for creating home environments that are tailored to the needs of its clients, Living in Space makes use of a skilled design team to create beautiful bespoke homes. From concept to completion, Living in Space has built a reputation for exceptional design in some of London's most prestigious locations and Brickfields, its latest project, is nothing less than extraordinary.
Bespoke interiors: Brickfields has been interior designed to make the most of the space and light available, and to offer you and your family the ultimate work-life balance, with an indoor swimming pool complex, cinema, gym and lavish roof terrace with outdoor hot tub. On the ground floor of the north and south wings of the property is the extensive open plan kitchen, designed by Lauren Nicholas. Beautifully finished in tranché oak and composite stone, it features A+ rated appliances including an integrated wine cooler, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and double sink. The ground floor also houses an open-plan dining and living area and a formal lounge, which has direct access to the garden. On the first floor, the north and south wings each feature two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and an additional study in the south wing. Both north and south are linked by a striking enclosed glass walkway, which allows for direct access to the roof terrace, its adjacent drinks bar and the hot tub. The generously sized terrace is accessible from both sides of the property and offers uninterrupted views of the breathtaking surroundings.
The Kiln: The kiln is the homes most striking design element and houses the master bedroom suite, a living room and the cinema. The master bedroom demonstrates meticulous design and features a curved wall of windows to make the most of the incredible views. A walk-in wardrobe, dressing room and en-suite bathroom with exquisite fixtures and fittings completes the suite. The kiln provides private access to the ground and basement levels via a curved staircase, directly from the master suite. The ground floor includes a luxurious living room while the basement level features the state-of-the-art cinema room with bar and wine cellar. From here, there is direct access to the basement level of the north and south wings, which houses the heated swimming pool complex with changing room, steam room and gym. There is also a sixth en-suite bedroom.
Designed for living: Sustainability has been a key factor in Brickfields design and as a result, the property has been awarded Code for Sustainable Homes Level 5. At approximately 8,000 sq ft and featuring six bedrooms, six bathrooms and numerous recreational facilities, Brickfields sustainable design means that the property is essentially self-sufficient, resulting in minimal annual running costs, estimated to be 20% of what would be expected.
With meticulous attention to detail, every area of the property has been designed to be functional, whilst using finishes and fixtures of the highest specification. This includes the home audio system, which functions throughout the house and can be altered and adjusted from the homeowners mobile phone or iPad. CCTV camera footage can be viewed on televisions throughout the house, allowing the discerning homeowner to view the propertys surrounding area at the touch of a button, whilst the property itself, along with a double garage and three further visitor parking spaces, is set behind electric gates.
Brickfields has been carefully orientated to make the most of the warmth and light from the sun. Large windows ensure good levels of daylight improving the health and wellbeing of occupants.
This home has a highly insulated roof, walls and floors with bespoke low heat loss windows, keeping the house warm in winter and reducing heating bills.
A ground source heat pump (GSHP) system has been installed to provide a low carbon method of heating. Ground source heat pumps use a small portion of electricity to extract heat from the ground and turn it into a larger portion of heat for heating systems and hot water.
Photovoltaic solar panels have been mounted on the roof and will generate a portion of the homes electricity. This will lower the dependency of the home on grid electricity, lowering energy bills. Excess electricity generate by the solar panels can be sold back to the grid through a Feed-In-Tariff and could also provide a small income for the occupant.
The building meets the Code for Sustainable Homes Level 5 and provides a 100% reduction in CO2 emissions as per the Governments definition of Zero Carbon. This means that the CO2 emissions from space heating, hot water, ventilation and lighting is offset through the installation of solar panels and ground source heat pumps.
Rainwater is collected from the roof to be stored in an underground tank, then cleaned ready for use in the washing machine and WCs.
Where possible, building materials have been responsibly sourced to reduce their impact on the environment.
Space for a home office has been included to reduce reliance on commuting.
Secure cycle storage has been provided.
The landscaped garden has been designed to improve and support local biodiversity.
