Bespoke Gun Rooms

Artichoke’s design team has a strong focus and interest in designing luxury bespoke gun rooms for private country houses on behalf of discerning UK and international clients.

We have an exceptional understanding of the diverse and very specific specialisms required for designing custom-made gun rooms: location, security, size, humidity, materials, interior design, storage and gun expertise.

Form and Function

A gun room can be so much more than simply a secure storage facility for shotguns and rifles. As an integral part of many country houses, Artichoke can design the perfect space for you to display your shotgun and rifle collection in bespoke cabinetry, providing you and your guests with a beautiful place to store and care for your guns and ammunition.

Most of Artichoke’s management team were brought up in rural environments and all possess a thorough understanding of the very specific storage requirements of a well-designed gun room.

Every bespoke gun room designed by Artichoke is individual according to the client brief. We offer a full creative space-planning service that takes account of all design considerations including:

  • Comprehensive furniture and storage design options such as custom-made display cabinetry, drying racks, storage drawers, free standing tables, desks and seating
  • Robust security

We maintain close ties with our local Police firearms officer and keep up to date with changes in legislation regarding the safe and secure storage of shotguns and rifles.

Case Study: Gun and Sporting Room, Shaftesbury, Dorset

Using European oak and leather, this bespoke timber gun and sporting room was designed for a classical house in Shaftesbury. Great care was taken to create the perfect storage for each gun, with those in the central section angled inwards, resting on a padded hide to protect the stocks. The central island was specifically designed for cartridge and cleaning equipment storage, angling the edges of the island top slightly to prevent gun parts and cartridges from falling onto the floor.
