A GODWIN HOUSE
A famous E.W. Godwin interior restored for the twenty-first century
The house was originally built by E.W. Godwin between 1878-1879 for Frank Miles, a society portraitist and friend of Oscar Wilde.
The current homeowners wanted to acknowledge and respect its history – and they also wanted to create a home appropriate for a busy, modern family.
This was not an academic historical re-creation. Using the wealth of archive material as a starting point, Rose peeled away the layers and additions, restoring the spaces purity, architectural integrity and authentic spirit whilst delivering a fresh timeless quality and new functionality.
