the country home by alessandro isola & supriya mankad

the country home by alessandro isola & supriya mankad 

located in 5 acres of land surrounded by the english countryside, london-based designers alessandro isola & supriya mankad have refurbished an existing contemporary british country house influenced by its natural surroundings.

feature elements from the hand crafted balustrade in the entrance hallway to the laser cut metal and glass panels for the kitchen doors and the spray painted feature fireplaces have all elements like timber grain patterns and the leaves from the garden.

by categorizing each room with distinct character, a sense of continuity remains through the whole house. just as the common areas have a cohesive theme, the private bedroom and the study area each have a unique identity. the study area has been developed as a flexible system of box shelves, where modularity and flexibility become apparent between brushed bronze wire finishes. a range of bespoke designed fittings from the ‘rhythm’ light carry over into the dining area as specially crafted stone elements contrast the kitchen and bathrooms.
