Hampstead Apartment In Grand Designs Magazine

Yahoo! Double feature in Grand Designs this month.

While an interview with George features on the back of the magazine, Hampstead Apartment stars as a case study in their monthly kitchen section.

In the article we discuss our tried and tested secrets of installing our fav bling material – brass. For the kitchen we jazzed up standard kitchen base units using a brass sheet worktop along with a bespoke brass welded sink, splash back and bespoke brass bar handles.

Check out the whole Grand Designs article here.

George in Grand Designs Mag!

If you turn to the back page of this week’s Grand Designs Magazine, you’ll find George staring in an interview talking about all things BVDS.

George chats through the story of how the company was started and how travelling with Ewald in a small camper-van taught them both a lot about adapting small spaces. He talks about Fleet Foxes inspired house extensions and where BVDS are heading for the future.

We think it’s a fun article that nicely sums up George and the workings of BVDS! So thank you Grand Designs for the feature. We’ll continue to be loyal readers.
