House Call: Found Associates in London

September 25, 2011

This Notting Hill townhouse remodel by London-based Found Associates (Remodelista Directory members) involved stripping the house's interior back to a mere shell and lowering the basement floor (at one point, the architects say, one could stand in the mud at the bottom of the house and look straight up to the roof). The owner of the house happens to be Jamie Theakston, a UK media personality described by the London Times as an "aspiring interiorista"; working closely with Found, Theakston created warm, personality-filled interiors outfitted mostly with midcentury finds from eBay. To see more, go to Found Associates.
