Seven Steps Home
Working directly with the client and the developer Henderson Homes and Noble Projects, to use different styles and formats in this house, to help create the clients desired look. Seven Steps is a unique detached residence in Wilmslow, one of the most prestigious addresses in this desirable Cheshire town. It occupies the former garden of a detached dormer bungalow, which was demolished and replaced by a new build dwelling, also constructed by Henderson Homes. The property was a private commission for a local family and the starting point for the design and layout was a ski chalet that the family had holidayed in.
The ground floor accommodation is spread over split-levels creating interest and providing privacy and a feeling of cosiness; usually a challenge in a property of this size. As you enter the house from the garage a funky hexagon porcelain feature floor dominates the space. A family lounge, kitchen and media room occupy one and a half storeys and the final effect is stunning, with the multiple layers of accommodation allowing family members to enjoy independent pursuits whilst still sharing the same space. Our 1.6 x 1.6 slab was specified for the kitchen, utility and living space. Which in its smooth honed finish gives the look and feel of a polished concrete floor.
The Master suite used a variety of finishes, formats and styles. For the floor our Shades of Oak in Grey was used with the same tile but grip finish running into the wet area. The walls had a mix of our Fumo 1200×600 Porcelain and feature wall with Yaki; a wood effect porcelain with a twist. The tile mimics the Japanese tradition of burning wood to waterproof it. Running along the window wall is a shelf which runs through into the shower to create a seat, this is tiled with the Shades of Oak tile in 2400x200mm to create the look of a solid block of wood.
The two children’s ensuites use the same white washed wood effect porcelain and on the walls playful use of tiles in bespoke patterns create a unique space. One of the ensuites contains our Trellis collection by designer Gordon Guillaumier which are set off back tasteful matt black fittings and backlit walls.
