Richard and Antony Joseph, the brothers behind innovative kitchenware company  Joseph Joseph live next door to one another in equally lovely houses in Wandsworth. Steering the creative direction of his new home, Richard ended up rebuilding the entire house. In the kitchen area Richard created an informal seating area that is flooded with natural light. The double-height dining space at the back of the building leads to the garden.

The house, built in the early 1860s, belongs to a fairly typical west-London terrace, with a basement kitchen, raised ground floor and two storeys of bedrooms above. It was in a reasonable condition, but the basement badly needed reordering. ‘There was a pokey little kitchen at the back’, interior designer Hugh Leslie recalls, ‘with a great big pillar in the middle that supported the back wall of the house.’ By replacing the pillar with a steel cross-beam, now hidden, Hugh was able to open up the room, creating a spacious, light-filled kitchen where the owners spend a lot of their time. With its mix of country furniture and stoneware, painted-wood wall units and a large, oak central island, it’s a relaxed, very liveable room that the owners evidently love. ‘Their friends are always telling them it’s the nicest kitchen in London,’ says Hugh.

Stay classy!
