An Events Venue in SW London
The brief was to overhaul and modernise the grounds of the historic house, providing an inspirational space, which is both flexible and stimulating for the future guests and staff.
The inspiration for the design were the interlocking wedding rings, which allowed the delivery of a contemporary revolution to the gardens, which it so desperately needed.
It is sympathetic to the house itself, flowing out from the bay windows in arcs across the garden, which join and interact with the flowing lines from the Ceremony and Reception areas; as if they were ripples in a pond. The solution itself boasts a strong geometry, but maintains a steady balance and flow which creates a warm and tranquil atmosphere to the gardens.
The scheme is flexible and will complement all of the commercial activities which Cambridge Cottage performs now and in the future. With such a strong design, I would expect to see a significant upturn in its business fortunes for the foreseeable future. The design pays homage to its past, but very much looks forward to the future.
