Lapicida takes you behind the scenes of an impressive neo-Jacobean residence in the north of England that features numerous Lapicida reclaimed stone, marble and porcelain surfaces plus pieces fabricated by our expert artisan craftsmen.
The interior pictures in this case study may lead you to believe that this is a period property that has been extensively renovated. Incredibly, this is actually a new build private home, created from scratch to the exact specification of the client.
The client’s vision was to create the country house feel and core aspects of this are a traditional sensibility with a well-travelled influences. The result is nothing short of astounding.
“The challenge with this bespoke new build property was to inject the feel of inherent permanence and enveloping quality via the various surfaces and pieces that were carefully chosen. We worked closely with the client to bring their vision to life and are delighted with the results.”
Rebecca Cherrington, Lapicida
MAKING AN ENTRANCE
When you first enter the property, you cannot help but notice the floors. The client wanted to make an immediate impression in the entrance hall with an expanse of natural stone flooring that had a traditional, yet eye-catching, pattern. Together we selected our Genuine Antique English Reclaimed Octagon which has real charisma. Cut to shape by our craftsmen, they marry the finest English reclaimed sandstone flags with Reclaimed Belgian Blue cabochons. The mason’s edge adds true provenance and style to this original surface. Reclaimed flags were also selected for the wine cellar to add a rustic permanence and authenticity.
BATHED IN BEAUTY
The bathrooms are things of beauty. No expense has been spared. The master bathroom exudes opulence everywhere you look. The stone mullion windows set the tone for natural stone and pour light onto the numerous Lapicida marble surfaces and pieces fabricated by our expert craftsmen. The bespoke roll top bath is matched perfectly to the stunning marble floor. Dominating one wall is the exquisitely carved marble double washstand and on the other wall is a custom cut marble shower enclosure.
“The bathroom has been a true labour of love. I’m absolutely thrilled with the outcome. The quality of the marble and the craftsmanship is exemplary. I think it must be my favourite room in the house. It has that classical yet contemporary fusion that I was aiming for from the offset. It’s simply perfect.”
EXCELLENCE IN ENTERTAINING
Our client appreciates the importance of good food and the art of entertaining. That is why extra emphasis was put on the kitchen and dining areas of their home. The entire kitchen and dining areas flow seamlessly together throughout thanks to its floor. From the expansive bespoke kitchen anchored by a large Aga oven and the highly functional scullery through to the breakfast room , new aged Jerusalem limestone provides a constant aura of natural calm.
