Design Encounter

In 2019, we invited visitors to head upstairs and journey through a series of interconnecting spaces for a unique, immersive and personalised encounter, a boundary-pushing collaboration between Architect John Allsopp and acclaimed interior designers Natalia Miyar, Run for the Hills, Samantha Todhunter Design, These White Walls, Zachary Pulman and Sella Concept.

The Designers

Natalia Miyar

Natalia Miyar Atelier is an interior design and interior architecture practice with the expression of its client’s individuality at its heart. Led by Natalia Miyar, the Atelier is a conduit for Natalia’s vibrant creative spirit. Natalia was named one of House & Garden magazine's Top 100 Designers in 2018 and 2019. 

Natalia’s Chelsea based practice focuses on interior architecture and design for luxury residential projects worldwide. From London to Miami, her teams collaborate to create immersive, sensory experiences – homes as wonderful as they are liveable. 

Natalia’s natural and learned ability to blend practicality with glamour has been honed in her transatlantic practice of architecture and interior design. As an architect in Miami, she developed a passion for materiality. As designer in London working on luxury residential projects in the UK and abroad, she led teams in realising luxurious homes for discerning national and international clientele.

Anna Burles - Run for the Hills

Award-winning design studio Run For The Hills was founded with the creative coming together of the established design practices of interior designer Anna Burles and her Artist and Graphic Designer husband Christopher Trotman. 

The studio has had a prolific couple of years in the hospitality space, designing two Kricket restaurants in Brixton and BBC Television Centre, urban seafood restaurant Claw in Carnaby, and glamorous all-day-brunch-meets-nightclub-art-gallery Scarlett Green in Soho.

The piece de resistance from last year came with the design of a Boutique Cinema, Bar & Café in Bath for Tivoli, a game-changer in the cinematic universe. Designing everything from the screening rooms to the cocktail bar, cafe and restaurant to the brand, visual identity and even the animated credits and idents playing on-screen when cinema-goers sit down. Since opening, the venue has been buzzing, with the kitchen working hard to keep up with demand. Extra covers are being added and it would seem the design really has delivered on creating an F&B destination in its own right. To watch Anna's Meet The Designer interview, click here.

Zachary Pulman Design Studio

Zachary Pulman has established himself as one of London’s premier architectural designers known for his signature stealth luxe sensibility and consummate attention to detail. Together with his expert team of architects, designers, engineers and construction specialists, his international practice takes a bespoke approach to each client’s unique requirements. It is testimony to Zachary’s professionalism, skill and knowledge that all his commissions have been through word of mouth recommendations.

The studio’s diverse portfolio includes commissions for residential interiors and extensions, retail and commercial spaces, leisure industry refurbishments as well as numerous restaurant and hospitality developments. The studio is also equipped with a complete understanding of planning regulations and listed property laws with a 100% track record of successful application.

The focus always points towards the integrity of the project, quality of materials and environmental initiatives. To watch Zachary's Meet The Designer interview, click here.

Rose Murray - These White Walls

These White Walls is a concept-driven and luxury-led design studio. Their approach to creativity starts with a blank canvas, and paints a picture of place that is as unique as each of their clients.

Their process involves exploring the potential of Narrative, Materials and Artistry to bestow a clarity of expression to each of their spaces.

These White Walls was founded in 2017 by Rose Murray. The studio’s practice represents the synthesis of Rose's multidisciplinary background as a scenographer, stylist and designer.  The studio launched its first project, HIDE, last year and is currently working on hospitality and residential projects, including restaurants and a boutique hotel in Italy, due to launch in 2020.

Samantha Todhunter Design

Samantha Todhunter Design has an easy modern dynamic. The studio creates interiors that are at once relaxed and informal but paired with essential dashes of glamour and luxe, this balance feeds into every element of the studio and defines the company’s signature.

Samantha Todhunter Design handles all levels of project from a simple decorative refresh to a complete interior overhaul. London based and globally aware, the firm’s projects range from the refurbishment of an historic 15,000 square foot Julia Morgan house in San Francisco to the interior renovation of a 9,000 square foot Aspen townhouse; houses in London & Chicago, a pied-à-terre in Paris; the restoration of a Grade 2* Queen Anne house in Oxfordshire and holiday homes in the South of France, Switzerland and Mexico to name but a few.
