Project 1 Design & Build Ltd

Prime Residential



This new build house has been constructed on former back land, bounded by rear gardens, in Waldeck Road, Ealing.  The imaginative design by Fletcher Crane Architects is sympathetic to the street scenography and the finished home is a clever light-filled compact dwelling, with simple raw finishes such as bespoke ash joinery, terrazzo tiling and metal balustrades.

Living spaces flow from the front to the rear of the site, with the kitchen and living room on the uppermost storey, making the most of natural daylight.  The bedrooms and associated bathrooms are located on semi sunken floors which lead out to a secluded garden.

There is an increasing trend for concealment of tracks and blinds in modern homes, and this project was no exception.  We supplied and installed Silent Gliss System 4930 Roller Blinds to the bedroom areas, recessed in blind boxes and so hidden from view (see below) when not in use.

Recessed Silent Gliss 6840 hand-drawn curtain tracks were supplied and installed together with DrapeTech Wave Curtains in White to the sitting room area and in Grey elsewhere.  By choosing to have the curtains unlined, they diffuse rather than cut out light.  Both curtains and blinds were in Silent Gliss Colorama 1 fabric.


This was a lovely project to be involved with, and the recessed curtains and blinds work very well with the minimal character of the interior design.
