Interior Architecture

Architecture is not simply an external benefit – a well-dressed ‘shell’ of a structure on a site. It is about well-crafted, well-organised, considered spaces that enhance living. Fundamentally, all human beings live and function the same way, this means that we all require the same basic needs for our homes – bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and living spaces – yet the success of our interior comes down to the relationships which exist between these spaces.

Interior architecture is about providing functional, beautiful spaces that will stand the test of time, ready for fittings and fixtures to be inserted and adapted as fashions change. Be it a new build or an alteration, where our clients envision having their morning coffee, eating lunch, entertaining friends and living in their home is influenced by the internal spaces they have available. In order to create designs, tailored specifically for each client, we need to understand how they live and how they want to live. Allowing us to approach the design process with a holistic view, connecting the interior to the site, climate and the way the clients will interact and experience their spaces.

Interior architecture allows the provision of a cohesive and co-ordinated design from the inside out. One cannot exist without the other, yet the success of the interior is intrinsically linked to the success of the exterior.

    Our house looks spectacular and we are delighted with the result. It is fair to say that without the input of Allfrey + South Architects it would not have been constructed with the astounding attention to detail that has been achieved.
