The former McMullen’s Brewery in Hertford has been transformed into a seven of modern apartments. Although the building has been given a completely new look on the inside, the apartments have retained many of the brewery's original features, from the bricks walls and original windows to the wooden beams and steel columns.
Burbeck Interiors were brought in to provide a 3057 square foot, four-bedroom show home for the prestigious development, to show potential buyers how to play on the rustic-industrial setting. The design team were asked to develop a contemporary, curated, bespoke interior, using pops of colour, brass accents, modern patterns and smart metals, creating a seamless fit with the iconic Victorian building's existing fixtures and fittings.
The project came with it's challenges; the team were given just three days to design and install the scheme from the initial site visit. Plus, the cinema room and living room had retained the former brewery’s old, original steel pillars, so furniture had to be sourced to fit around the existing room layouts.
The master bedroom features beautiful original wooden beams in the middle of the room, so the space had to be divided up wisely.
The four bedroom, four bathroom apartment offers spacious living spaces throughout, and benefits from being set over three floors.
An open-plan living, dining and kitchen sit on the ground floor, with distinctive smoke grey oak engineered chevron flooring.
Rugs were chosen to highlight and complement the flooring design.
There's also a lower ground floor with a huge TV/games room along with a vast storage room. Poured concrete flooring adds to the industrial aesthetic.
