LjHabitat Edition 24

The homeowners had an open budget for this project and a strong desire to create a home with an emphasis on quality, craftsmanship and timeless style. With this in mind, Blanca searched the globe to source the finest craftspeople and best suppliers, resulting in a design that is truly bespoke. When designing this project, Blanca started with the hallway panelling. A feature that can so easily be overlooked, the strong classical grounding of the panelling, painted white, is

timeless and elegant and provides a backdrop for the home. The house includes the ultimate in entertaining and at-home luxury: a lower ground floor containing an indoor swimming pool, gym, sauna, steam room, changing room, 16-seater home cinema, bar and air- cooled wine cellar. This private four-level estate has seven bedrooms, four reception rooms and eight bathrooms — enough accommodation to cater for family and friends who wish to visit. Yet far

from being an impressively large home, the impact of this property is in the atmosphere created by its striking interiors and the luxe finishes and materials. Blanca’s design inspiration was drawn from a row of circles in the window that sits above the front door. To create a sense of flow and connection, the circles were echoed in the front door design and then carried through into the heart of the house on the staircase balustrade design.
