Located in South London, St Saviours Road is full of detached Victorian houses with homeowners seeking contemporary redesigned living spaces. Working with the residents, Russian for Fish collaborated with 202 Design to refurbish the residence, making the most of every space and optimising natural lighting. Reorganising the entire home, the orangery was replaced and extended to create a generous dining room on an entirely rebuilt floor. Using Richlite to create floor to ceiling shelves, it splits the large dining room to create a homely, office area with a garden view.
The recycled paper composite is also used in the kitchen's drawers, cupboards and island cladding and will transform over time, growing to a deeper and warmer almost gunmetal grey that withstands the demands of a domestic kitchen. The texture and warmth extends throughout the kitchen, shifting from dark to light from floor to ceiling, a contrast to the dining room which goes from lower light colours to dark on the upper levels. This colour shift is mirrored in the rest of the home's interior for a cohesive considered feel.
