I was delighted to have been invited by internationally renowned architect and designer Philippe Maidenberg to carry out the interior photography of his Dreamers Lounge collaboration with Roche Bobois for the London debut of Holiday House – a designer showhouse spread over two adjoining properties in North West London.
Philippe is an award-winning Paris based architect, interior and furniture designer specialising in hotel design and branding. In collaboration with French high-end furniture designer Roche Bobois, they created a “Dreamer’s Lounge”, a stunning space dedicated to Supertramp’s legendary frontman, Roger Hodgson.
Holiday House was conceived in 2008 by American interior designer Iris Dankner to raise awareness and money for breast cancer research having herself survived an early diagnosis twenty years ago.
The concept of a designer showhouse is for each room to be designed by a different designer. In the case of Holiday House London there are 25 top class contributors including Nicky Haslam, Nina Campbell, Laura Hamnett, Studio Suss and many more. The complete list can be found here.
Monies raised from ticket sales to the public will be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, an American charity, which will spend the proceeds in the UK.
Located in the attic, 3 storeys up, I had quite a climb with three camera bags. What a journey, with every room I passed on the way I glanced in and drank up a different design complete with world class designer, VIP guests, journalists, photographers, videographers….
Quite a scene… and all for a very good cause. Holiday House London is open to the public from November 8th through December 10th 2017.
