Budge Over Dover is a beautiful project that displays a consistency between the interior design and styling that reveals complete unity of big picture ideas. The jury especially commended the designer for showing great skill in working with the existing building fabric, which resulted in a radical transformation that never battles against the original structure, but instead feels completely natural and effortless.
The exquisite palette of materials, colours, textures and accents uniquely responds to the client’s brief without relying on a conventional vernacular and the result is completely unexpected, while still being restrained and elegant. A sculptural aesthetic defines the overall scheme and there’s also a clear relationship to the exterior, resulting in a seamless integration between inside and out. This is a lovely way to treat the home’s spaces, highlighting the interior’s exceptional proportions in the process.
A sculptural aesthetic defines this home with balanced proportions, seamlessly integrating the outdoors within on both levels of the coastal dwelling. Swathes of soothing colour flow from textured walls into ceilings highlighting newly conjoined spaces carved from a warren of dark rooms and hallways, transforming it into a family sanctuary.
