Gorrow House featured on Habitus Living

"Thus began a collaborative, experimental and occasionally spontaneous design process. The client’s open-mindedness allowed Järv to push her creative limits and incorporate materials and details that more conventional residents would shy away from."

A few years ago I got to work with an interesting client (another creative), who was willing explore unconventional design solutions and wanted to experiment with a "clash in the house". The brief was to transform an unremarkable 1960's brick labyrinth of a house, into a modern, open-plan living space with an emphasis on entertaining. A fashion designer who regularly pushed the boundaries in his own line of work, the client had eclectic taste, was widely travelled, as well as being an avid surfer, so it was essential the new home conveyed a relaxed beach-side quality, yet had international appeal.

The Gorrow House was reluctantly sold when the client relocated overseas, however it's new owners graciously agreed to have über-cool architecture and design mag Habitus recently photograph the house for their website which you can check out here

And if you are interested you can also check out some more images on my website here.
