A renovation of any size is an exhilaratingly terrifying experience but it's hard to resist the urge. The process is filled with doubt, excitement and an overall sense of uncertainty as you try to transform a bag of bare bones into a beautiful masterpiece…
Jamie Theakston took on the project without fully knowing what he was getting himself and his family into — but isn't that typically the case? He had no idea that he was going to need support beams and had really only thought about new floor choices.
While Jamie found himself unsure and slightly scared at times, he pushed through, stayed true to his vision (and that of Found Associates) and the final result is absolutely stunning. The exterior of his London home exudes the original traditional design while the interiors are a bit more playful.
