Interior Design

OpticRealm has a history of designing every detail of the interiors of a wide range of properties. We understand the need to deliver a functioning usable space at the same time as being ascetically pleasing and interesting to be part of.

Our projects cover a wide range of design features; from lighting, furnishing, bathrooms and kitchens to restaurants and office spaces.

 

Typically OpticRealm will work with the end user, architects and engineers to create a space that is individual that includes a high quality design element.

In the past we have worked with some very challenging properties – grade listed buildings, small spaces, modern town terraces, country institutions, public spaces and commercial spaces. All the results have stood the test of time and have given much pleasure since.

Case studies.

Prince Albert Bar and Restaurant.

This one storey back street Camden boozer was transformed from a down at heel local to a modern "gastro-pub" style bar restaurant over three floors. A commercial kitchen was installed in the basement and a rich burgundy dining room with eclectic furniture and stripped warehouse flooring replaced the old manager’s flat. The bar’s original wood panelling was restored and extended with the addition of antique oak furniture and a mismatch of rich floral baroque covered dining chairs. www.princealbertcamden.com

 

Cornerstone House.

The brief for Cornerstone House was a very difficult one to fulfil. The owners wanted to produce a 19 room mental health hospital from an old missionary’s home, but it had to have the feeling of a home. Set in 2.6 acres of greenbelt, OpticRealm set about making the most of the surroundings and making use of materials and colours that brought the outside world in. The result is a calming environment of oak, pale greens, large chunky furniture and light from what was a run down hostel.

OpticRealm were able to install CCTV, a commercial kitchen, clinic, air conditioning and anti-ligature door fittings as well as refurbishing the bedrooms and installing en-suite bathrooms in each to bring the property up to standard.

Furnishing the hospital brought its own challenges – furniture, fixtures and fittings had to be robust and functional yet be ascetically pleasing. Therapy areas were populated by interesting designs to complement the ground breaking work the hospital was achieving, and eating areas kitted out so the canteen look was avoided. www.vision-mh.com
