A tired London Georgian Villa and corresponding Mews House are reinvented celebrate the past and also modern living – the two interiors, divided by garden, share similar yet subtly differing sensibilities

Fun and casual with a feeling of sophistication, this interior has touches of 50s accents, some vintage and some new with a 50s influence

Designer: we chose a dynamic black & white feature polished porcelain that looks like a large travertine stone slab for the back wall behind the bath

A heritage renovation repurposes the interior while enhancing the original cottage's character – an in-keeping double height rear extension provides modern living

As if a substantial window splashback wasn't enough, this kitchen makes further celebration of its verdant setting with reflective cabinet surfaces

This renovation delineates old values from new work – as part of this, the existing bare staircase is in part retained with a modern perforated zinc stair starting 95cm above

Working with the constraints of a condominium setting, this kitchen reorganises everything and adds an Asian-influenced rear cabinet wall as a feature

Despite a narrow site, this light-filled family home offers an easy flow between designer kitchen & living spaces and a covered outdoor space

Not all islands have to resemble a small aircraft carrier – this U-shaped kitchen with tall wall cabinets works well with a modest, circular, central version

A moody Silestone splashback works in well with this dark toned kitchen which can be largely concealed behind bifold, retracting cabinetry doors

This bathroom's unusual layout comprises a central glassed entryway/shower stall, which also opens left and right to his and her spaces

With differing profiles on different street exposures and separable upstairs and down stairs, this home also stretches out to its outlooks
