Architecture in Surrey
A large part of what would be considered the classic Surrey style of architecture was originated by Sir Edwin Lutyens in the early 1900s. While properties older than this may be in the style of English country cottages, the Lutyens influence can be seen in tall chimneys, large gables and sweeping roofs, which many property developers across Surrey copied through the 1930s.
This sort of period detail is one of our specialisms – our team holds extensive experience and knowledge of Surrey country houses. We have a fantastic track record of designing beautiful kitchens to complement elegant properties.
Our first project involved the design of the principle kitchen, library and dressing rooms for a family home on Marley Heights, near Haslemere. We have also been involved in extensive work throughout the county, including a whole house renovation near Dunsfold, as well commissions on a large neo-Georgian house in Wentworth and a Lutyens-designed house near Farnham.
Case Study: Lutyens Kitchen, Haslemere
One of our most recent commissions involved the design of a beautiful new kitchen extension for a Surrey vernacular country home. The room was created in the style of the kitchen of Castle Drogo, with the client requesting a design that was modern but not overly contemporary. We met the brief by utilising a mix of timbers and stones to create a warm and inviting space. The darker timber is European walnut while the lighter timber is a stylish limewashed oak. The dish above the chimney was inspired by a similar feature in Lutyens’ Goddards – one of the client’s favourite buildings.
How Artichoke Works
At Artichoke we take a highly involved approach to our designs. We will take the time to understand the features of your home as well as how you and your family before we get started on the designing process. Our first goal is to ensure that a room is practical and can work within the requirements of your brief. We can then focus on designing unique furniture to suit the aesthetic of the property.
We have been commissioned by many clients throughout Surrey seeking complete originality and elegance from their home, and we would be happy to do the same for you. Every aspect of your project will be designed and created from our purpose-built workshops.
