Plascon House Tour: Contemporary Design Meets Old Victorian Home
This crumbling Victorian Dairy in Dulwich, Great Britain had a collapsing roof, damp and no natural daylight before it was restored into this glorious abode with modern finishes.
The previously dark, dank spaces were converted into a light-filled family home but retained its industrial atmosphere and unique charm, whilst the extensive use of steel windows and doors maximised the views of the two vertical courtyard gardens.
The kitchen feels light and luminous thanks to a shell chandelier and glossy mosaic tiles used as a backsplash. A dining table with modern black seating creates a contemporary feel while beautiful white wooden beamed ceilings add to the overall character of this revamped home.
A limited palette of materials including unlacquered brass, plaster and concrete put an elegant twist on the previously industrial aesthetic. We also love the choice of leather and wood furniture that add a sense of depth in the living room.
Contemporary muted tones are used throughout this home and extend into the bedrooms and study. The architecture remains a feature in this home as evident in the rooms where arched ceilings add height and character. Here we see the grey cupboards and drapes that pop against a muted pink wall and add to the overall aesthetic of the space.
The outdoor spaces have a magical ambience with rustic stone walls adding to the charm of the space. Concrete seating makes for the ideal place of rest with pops of greenery that add a freshness to these areas.
Our overall impression? The old, dark, damp spaces have been beautifully transformed into a luminous family home, yet retain their industrial atmosphere and distinct charm.
