11 The Paragon

atPrivate ResidenceBristol, United Kingdom
162 square metres of pure painted pleasure, with some authentic Georgian rubble and driftwood thrown in for good measure. What once resembled a dripping, grimy, rabbit-warreny vaulted prison worthy of Jack Sparrow on a very bad run of luck is now a fabulous 3 Bed Maisonette. It?s in a Grade 2 Star Listed Georgian terrace property (oh, the fun, the joyous fun to be had with conservation officers) in Bristol. We ?restored? the existing fabric, converting what were previously stores and garages in the rear to interior space (making them look as greek-island-glorious as we could). Newly introduced elements stand proud (literally, they are P R O U D ) of the older building, painted in bright, contrasting colours. NOT using Farrow and Ball. We are confidently Dulux. A redundant staircase was converted into a library (there?s a kiddy ledge that is situated near the top, not shown in the photos). Light is brought into what was previously a dark (dank, bleak) area through the use of clerestories, a large skylight spanning the width of the property (there is a grill above it for the communal terrace, which casts uncanny, Hitchcock bars of shadow through the rooms?), and a glazed wall unit (with integrated blind for privacy at night) to one side of the main corridor. a big shout out to Adrian Jones.

Meet the Creator

"I’m an artist & designer of Argentine, Japanese and Israeli heritage based in London. I trained in Architecture and Fine Art, and work in those areas as well as products, interiors, writing and teaching. My work has been exhibited in London, Paris, New York, Milan, Rome, Eindhoven, Minneapolis, Portland, Kortrijk, Veszprem, Vienna & Glasgow, is held in the collections of the Design Museum, the Sir John Soane's Museum, the Carnegie Museum of Art, the Abet Museum, & the Architectural Association, and has been published widely. The atelier has completed, and ongoing projects both internationally (Europe, the US, S America, the Middle East, East Asia) and in the UK. I have lectured at the RIBA, Harvard GSD, UC Berkeley, the Carnegie Museum of Art, Cardiff University, Innsbruck University, the Casa dell'Architettura Rome, the BSR, and the Biennale Interieur, amongst others, and have taught courses at several universities as well as having been Studio Master at Central St Martins in London, and am co-director of Saturated Space at the AA.
I bring equal parts pleasure, colour, and joy, as well as critical consideration, reflection and depth to everything I am lucky enough to be involved in.
My designs are always approachable, usually adorable, often cheeky, and take inspiration from a passionate & lifelong exploration of the themes of Queerness, colour and ornament as a political-aesthetic project, with my objects, artwork, spaces & installations invariably being embodiments of the diasporic, fluid & roaming cultures that surrounded me as I grew up, and which continue to fascinate & inspire me to this day."
