Property of the Week

Suna Interior Design has unveiled the spectacular results of its latest project; The Chapel at Hampstead Manor, available to buy for £7,500,000.

The centre piece of this prestigious new development by Mount Anvil, the striking neo-Grecian property dates back to 1928 and has been beautifully furnished to enhance its original beauty, whilst creating a striking home.  Rebecca Hunt, Director at Suna Interior Design explains: “Being part of an historic renovation like The Chapel is a huge honour.  It also presents unique challenges! We’ve overcome these and created a spectacular sense of opulence, with several bespoke hero pieces that enhance the building’s original features.”

Stepping into the property’s grand elevated entrance, the impressive light-filled chapel is immediately in view.  Grand stairs descend into the vast chapel area where the ambitious design team focused on styling a space that would suit every-day living. Their objective was to achieve a sense of comfort whilst creating a beautiful, adaptable, functional space.  This was achieved with two symmetrical seating areas incorporating large curved sofas, which make use of the amazing space.  The furniture has all been placed centrally to the room so it stands away from the striking original panelling and amazing chapel windows which surround the room. Rebecca comments: “The building speaks for itself and the magnificent living area has been styled with grand furniture in rich textiles, creating a striking yet homely feel, whilst ensuring the space is practical for living.”

A huge bespoke chandelier cascades over the statement round dining table and creates a real talking point in this main room. Designed to look incredible from all angles, this presented the biggest challenge for the style team as the light uses a power point which is not central to the listed building.  Viewing the piece from the mezzanine level, which has been styled as a traditional study area, guests are able to marvel at the unique light and view the beautiful furniture layout in the main chapel from another perspective.  The piece creates an equally dramatic first impression when entering the home on the ground floor, whilst cleverly bringing the ceiling down, adding a cosy element to the space.  Made in France, the magnificent bronze chandelier has three branches and took 5 days to install. Rebecca adds: “The creation of this centre piece involved numerous diagrams and concept images, which made it very technical as well as conceptual.  Working with a distinguished purchaser in mind and considering how it could appear central meant we had to give crooked original features an illusion of perfection.  The results are incredible, so this meticulous process was totally worth it!”  The study also features its own pendant light for a softer glow, which is a play on a church organ.

Suna chose a neutral colour pallet to respect the building’s architecture, introducing a scattering of blues and teals in rich textures for warmth.  Creating a cohesive scheme, this resonates in each room, including the home cinema.  Here, another bespoke item in the form of a huge, enveloping bed-like sofa, has been made to fit the room’s curved dimensions perfectly.  Creating comfort at the highest level, the striking piece is an alternative to the traditional tiered seating used in home cinemas.  Reached by an original natural stone step, the room screams relaxation and informality.

As the building transitions from the original chapel to its newer section, a circular light-well lets in streams of light above a traditional round table and a splendid staircase leads to the four bedrooms.  Each bedroom enjoys varying characters but are all linked through lavish tactile wallpapers, creating a sense of calm and warmth in contrast to the grandness of the living area.

Rebecca concludes; “It was important to us to not only design the interiors, but to design the living experience of this home, so our approach went beyond aesthetics to incorporate practical considerations.  We feel we’ve created the ultimate balance of luxury and functionality, whilst embracing The Chapel’s original charm.”
