HZI are working on an exclusive Tuscan villa and estate located in the dramatic hilly countryside outside Siena for one of our returning clients. The design concept is to create a comfortable retreat that references the centuries old rich history of the area and at the same time incorporates these with a curated mix of both vintage and contemporary elements and found pieces.
Paris Hôtel Particulier
Set on the River Seine, this 19th century townhouse was completely stripped of its classical detailing by its previous owner. Our objective is to restore the residence to its former grandeur and historic character. The complete overhaul is being achieved by utilising time honoured craftsmanship and attention to detail, while adopting a style that we’ve loosely come to term a ’travelling style’, incorporating decorative motifs from across history. Each room speaks to a different era, from Napoleon III to Art Deco and Chinoiserie, while still maintaining the elegant sense of cohesion one would expect from a stately family home.
The extensive renovation of this contemporary holiday villa and it's guest and boat houses, includes exterior and interior architecture, interior design and landscaping. The Modernist inspired style speaks of casual luxury.
Conceptually, our interior is informed by culture and history, it is a marriage of layered and luxurious textures with natural, raw and precious materials; each of these selected for their inherent and subliminal qualities of timelessness, warmth and depth.
A contemporary barn renovation in the English countryside, where the bucolic character of the building and its traditional architectural elements will inform our design. The interior, which will celebrate original, natural and exposed materials, will aim to evolve into a seamlessly modern and functional light infused home.
