The interiors are by Alex and Mathew Orme at Space+Matter, who took care of everything from the planning and building to the sourcing. Mathew oversaw structural issues, while Alex took charge of decoration. Alex’s brief was to steer clear of anything fusty and to inject more life and daring into the house.
