Leveson Design began works on a private family house in South West London in 2010 and finished in 2012.

The house was originally two houses that became one in the 1970s, which made it into a fantastic, large family home with an equally large garden.  The staircase, which is now one of the house’s main features, almost entirely inspired the design for the house.  The client bravely agreed to take out the small original staircase, take down two walls and the result is a very large hall and fabulous staircase with an oval well.

The brief from the client was to create a comfortable, light and practical family home with all the mod cons.  They did not want it to look overly decorated and they liked the idea of it feeling like a country house but in London.
