2018 has been a stellar year for Rigby & Rigby. The consultancy has expanded significantly on both the domestic and international stage, securing projects in Europe, Asia and the Americas as well as in Britain. In April the group launched Allect, an international interior design group, comprising leading practitioners in the fields of architecture, residential and marine interiors, and lighting and furniture design.
For Rigby & Rigby, being British is part of its core identity.
The company embodies the traditional British qualities of flair and design, attention to detail, hard work and punctuality.
Many of the company’s British and international clients decide to work with Rigby & Rigby because they value the fact that the consultancy is a British, family-owned brand that reflects these virtues.
Rigby & Rigby, founded in 2006, is a design and development studio that focusses on prime central London properties, predominantly in Belgravia, Kensington, Knightsbridge and Mayfair. Producing considered, intelligent designs with an element of refinement, it creates interiors that feel right, function perfectly, look extraordinary and answer the client’s needs. Consequently, the consultancy has a reputation for adapting its plans to reflect its clients’ lifestyles and wellbeing, alongside the latest trends in architecture and interior design.
In April 2018 the company handed over the keys – on time and on budget – to a double-fronted, Grade II-listed family house in Kensington, which had been transformed into a spacious, contemporary and light-filled home. Rigby & Rigby’s scheme for the property included painstaking refurbishment of the original architectural features, the creation of an
85 per cent rear basement extension with gym, pool and entertainment space beneath a spectacular, 4.4-metre-high, floor-to-ceiling glazed rear wall.
In London, the company was recently appointed to develop a £100m private house in Knightsbridge. Plans for the six-floor super-home include three subterranean levels, fitted out with a cinema, gym, pool, yoga room, and staff quarters. A humidity-controlled underground garage, housing the client’s collection of cars, will be served by a car lift equipped with number-plate recognition technology. Extensive landscaped roof gardens will provide a relaxing oasis of calm in the heart of super-prime London.
Illustrating its versatility, Rigby & Rigby has recently been retained to design and develop a striking 14,500 sq/ft contemporary interpretation of the traditional Georgian mansion on a large British country estate with extensive woodland. The three-storey property (replacing an existing bungalow) will strike a balance between modern finishes and the traditional cornicing, picture rails and architraves of the period. The property will include a swimming pool, cinema, secret games room and entertainment space with dance floor, as well as a wine cellar and tasting room. A self-contained guest apartment over the garages, will be connected to the house by a glazed lobby.
Private client commissions such as these now represent the majority of Rigby & Rigby’s work. Their wealth of experience in architecture and interior design provides the knowledge and understanding to bring a client’s brief gloriously to life.
