SV Residence


The house, originally built in 1895 by architect Henrik Hagemann & Møller, was previous owned by artist Hans Voigt Steffensen who decorated the exterior walls, manhole covers and glass doors with murals which were retained. With help from historic photographs of the house, our client decided to restore the original roof ornamentation as well as the exterior balustrades and balcony, returning the house to its original style and glory.

The Brief

When we were engaged by the client, references to English country charm and colonial details led our initial discussions, and a desire to preserve the house’s traditional style became clear. We then aimed to enhance the spaces with modern bohemian luxury. Throughout the process we worked closely with the client to balance the traditional with the modern.

The house had to undergo full refurbishment, with the dig-out of the basement in order to accommodate a new spa with sauna and steam room, as well as a gym, wine room and kids playroom.

Bespoke Design

Our interior is a sensual and layered interior experience, where meticulous attention to bespoke joinery details, materiality and proportion compliments the carefully selected furniture and antique pieces. A colour scheme of dusty dark green, saturated yellow, blues and cream weave the rooms together across the floors. We worked with Danish craftsmen to build the bespoke joinery, doors and furniture pieces, as well as engaging in UK based upholsterers in order to make unique furnishings with tailored fabrics. Wallcoverings and curtains where another added layer, playfully mixing fabrics and adding tassels, matching the curtain motif to the wallpaper artwork in one of the children’s rooms.
