Alice rowen hall, co-founder of
rowen homes, reviews the project.
It can sometimes be tricky to visualise a prospective home when it is empty. The Birches is
an exceptional property with huge rooms and beautiful high ceilings and it was a pleasure to
prepare 3D visuals for this home, to help potential buyers with design and layout ideas.
Our rst step was to tour the property
to get an idea of the space. Expense has
certainly not been spared on this luxury
build – from the skirting boards to the
doors and marble bathrooms, everything
We then took the original architect’s
oorplans and built them out in our
software and got to work on planning the
space. With such large rooms, we felt it
was important to ‘zone’ the rooms. In a
property of this size, you have the luxury
of integrating living areas into each
We wanted to create dierent visual
identities in each room, whilst sticking to
a modern theme. This would help to
target a broad market and also give a
guide on the dierent style routes a buyer
could choose to go down. We felt it was
important to bring in masculine and
feminine elements in each room.
Kitchen Living Area
The property benets from a large
kitchen/living area. Open plan family
areas like this are very popular in build &
design and it’s important that they are
functional and have a space for a range of
purposes and family members. They are
often a hive of activity, with doors out to
the garden, and work best if they are not
too formal and pristine.
For the Kitchen Living Area, we chose
black and ivory as core colours.
Incorporating the wood ooring that runs
throughout this area, we chose a
minimalistic style, with large artwork and
a tted TV unit.
First, we designed a big squashy sofa
area for the family to kick back on and a
large integrated TV unit for optimal
storage. The TV would be hung on a
rotating bracket so it could be watched
while cooking in the kitchen too. There
were plenty of rooms to house a more
formal dining area for entertaining, so we
thought we’d keep the dining area in this
room more casual. Round tables are
perfect for casual social settings.
We then added a seating area that
would allow residents to sit and gaze out
over the garden. The perfect area for a
For the Master Bedroom, we wanted to
create a homely and comforting, cosy
space. As the area was quite large we
chose to zone it with rugs and create a
beautiful living area with a view, which
showcases the four windows perfectly.
We used a palette of beige and gold for a
For this room we went for a pale grey
theme with a feminine, Parisian feel. We
built out the wall for the TV and added a
replace for cosiness. We want this
bedroom for our ourselves – how serene
does it look!
We went for a grown up, homely feel in
this room, and kept the main space clear
to show how large the room was. We
introduced a geometric print in this room
to add interest.
