Anna Van Dongen, Interior Designer
In January 2010 Anna van Dongen, Interior Designer for her own company, Space Matters was contracted to completely refurbish a stylish Edwardian Apartment in North London. Her client had particularly wanted a complete change to the feel and layout of the apartment and wanted a finish of perfection. Part of the refurbishment required is the replacement of a triple aspect sash window bay.
Anna contacted The Sash Window Workshop and was put directly in touch with our Surveyor Matthew Dixon. Matthew went to visit the property with Anna and was able to put together a proposal for replacing the windows. It was important to both Anna and her client that the replacement windows represented the style and integrity of the age of the property plus provided as much light into the room as possible and offering security and insulation. Matthew took all of these requirements into account and Anna was impressed with the proposal and the meticulous attention to detail Matthew provided. The order was placed and with the windows being completely taken care of Anna was able to move onto other areas of her project.
Anna designed the whole property: a new kitchen/utility, bathroom, master bedroom, office/guest room, hallway and urban garden. Space Matters used their associate building firm MPCM and project managed the whole refurbishment. July 2010, just eight weeks from the beginning of works, the whole project was complete. The results are truly stunning. Not only were the replacement windows everything Anna and her client expected, Anna's vision, style and attention to detail succeeded to transform the tired and featureless apartment into an elegant home by restoring its period features and using luxurious materials and bespoke furniture. So completely different and improved to the original layout and design it is remarkable.
