Colorful Herringbone Floors Remake a London Victorian House

Architecture & Interiors

Boutique-apartments-in-London-by-Alma-nac_dezeen_ss_28A newly restored Victorian house in London has been given a fairly musical remake in which the floors take center stage. In gut-renovating the four floors of the terrace house into a hotel for guests of a recording company, London based architects Alma-nac took inspiration from the music-related art work at their disposal. “Graphic and aesthetic elements from the studio’s various music labels were interwoven with Victorian period features to generate this colourful response,” say the architects, and among those esthetic elements on display are sleek monochromatic cabinetry, saturated colors and typographic details in unexpected places. But, it’s the colorful zigzag of herringbone in each room that draws the eye, above all elseelevating the project from a well-done remake to full-fledged show-stopper.Boutique-apartments-in-London-by-Alma-nac_dezeen_ss_37Boutique-apartments-in-London-by-Alma-nac_dezeen_ss_31Boutique-apartments-in-London-by-Alma-nac_dezeen_ss_30Boutique-apartments-in-London-by-Alma-nac_dezeen_468_9Boutique-apartments-in-London-by-Alma-nac_dezeen_ss_34Boutique-apartments-in-London-by-Alma-nac_dezeen_468_20Boutique-apartments-in-London-by-Alma-nac_dezeen_468_23Boutique-apartments-in-London-by-Alma-nac_dezeen_468_6

    I love the concept; it’s very unique and appealing though I am not sure if I will love the dark stripes for long (if I will apply this at home). I love the light ones like the first image stripes in yellow and the 7th with stairs. And really with all that ‘words’ in stairs? It’s really artistic! Overall, like it! :)

    Like the bright yellow cabinets on the first two images. Flooring also looks very good!
