Classic Meets Modern

I always gravitate toward rooms that portray a clean, classic, and sophisticated design that has the mix of the old and the new, a wonderful balance between the past and the present.

In designing this boardroom, Anouska Hempel Design was faced with building restrictions, which would not allow the installation of bookcases on the floor, or making any changes to the ceiling.

Creativity took precedence, in order to retain the integrity of the eighteenth-century room, furniture designer Tim Gosling collaborated by designing lacquered bookcases which were supported by a base of steel plates. In the end an exquisite and a harmonious space was created.
