A pub with bedrooms brought back to life by art dealer Ivor Braka. The public spaces and bedrooms at The Gunton Arms are all designed by Robert Kime and his team, mixing Kime’s signature style with Braka’s extensive art collection.
Described as a farmhouse and outbuildings, probably originally cow house under the granary, under one roof, Docker Nook was built in the late seventeenth, early eighteenth century. Lime-washed stone rubble occupies an enviable position within the Lake District National Park. Following the purchase, a full restoration and redecoration project ensued.
Originally a modest Bergerie, sheltering a goatherd and flock, by 1880 it had grown into a farm with a courtyard, a base-cour, and outbuildings. High in the valley in Provence, the design projectby Robert Kime demanded an understanding of the building’s origins and the client’s enthusiasm for the house as it stood and its historical importance.
Originally built by an Englishman in the mid-nineteenth century, thisinterior design project by Robert Kime offers high ceilings and spacious rooms, providing good scope for a holiday home.
Upper Farm, where for many years Robert Kime lived and from which he ran his growing business, was in an enviable position, just half a mile up a drive on the way to a Roman fort. The house and farm buildings ripe for conversion provide the context against which Robert created one of his most well-known projects.
Built in 1703 for the second Duke of Beaufort, this mansion sits on the edge of Badminton Park and sports a distinctive symmetrical design of castellations and tall chimneys. In 1996, the then Duke of Beaufort approached RobertKime for his help in reclaiming it as a hunting lodge.
With a focus on creating an environment that reflects the interests and tastes of the client, with inspiration from their travels and collections, this project, in a handsome London neighborhood was led first by identifying the structural changes that would enhance the livability of the house, followed by a full interior design project by Robert Kime.
An 18th-century building with fine proportions and a good staircase; only the front had been doctored in the 19th century, sits a hundred yards from the British Museum. Within view of the eccentric steeple of nearby Saint George’s Bloomsbury, a glass ceiling was inserted by Robert Kime at the far end of the ground floor of the building so this remarkable Hawksmoor church built in the late 1720s could be easily admired.
A garden square flat in a building designed by Sir Thomas Cubitt, showing lofty ceilings and doors out to a tree-filled terrace lent itself to significant renovation to create an elegant London home for clients who returned to Robert Kime for a second project.
