Located in the city of Design, London, Rafael De Cárdenas elevated the design to the next
level with Glebe Place Residence, by mixing novel styles, gathering together such dissimilar traditional Portuguese pieces and modern design. Still, the distinguished designer guarantees the most harmonious environments with this ambitious design project.
The NY based interior designer recreated several different rooms, each one with its own classic touch. One of the three dining rooms have a special Portuguese reference completing the whole ambiance with the perfect piece of art, D. Manuel I cabinet from Boca do Lobo’s Limited Edition Collection.
Manueline Style is the sumptuous, composite Portuguese style of architectural ornamentation, incorporating maritime elements and representations of the discoveries brought from the voyages of Vasco da Gama and Pedro Álvares Cabral, two of the most renamed discoverers in Portugal history.
Right beside the entrance door, D. Manuel was chosen strategically to expand the space and cut the contemporary design of the rest of the pieces. The cabinet surface has a copper leaf finish, with a sophisticated black lacquer gradient applied on the outside. Its legs are made from solid mahogany and are crafted to a traditional and handmade form, finished in high gloss black lacquer.
Landscape architect Philip Nixon consulted on the garden design, which features a green wall, palm fronds surrounding a checkerboard patio, and a reflecting pool with a cantilevered slate bench.
The astonishing residence was renovated to evoke timeless luxury, balancing
contemporary classics with the home’s historic character.
A restrained palette of Portland limestone, hardwood, and natural materials are punctuated by vibrant accents of turquoise, fuchsia, brass, and deep purple furnishings from modern European and American designers.
The use of such modern luxury brands gave this design project that contemporary touch that this luxurious residence was in need!
Glebe Place Residence it is way more than a platform of design, it has its own personality
keeping most of the original details intact.
