在过去的十年间，House of Grey一直致力于重塑其作为设计工作室的理念和实践，同时为客户创造恢复性的室内空间和健康的居住环境。该项目是House of Grey最新完成的项目之一，它融合了工作室的标志性美学观念和Salutogenic Design（有益健康的设计）原则。Salutogenic Design的目标十分简单，即创造能够让人变得更加健康的空间――这也是当今世界上许多领先医疗设施所践行的原则。
Over the past decade, House of Grey have been reﬁning our thinking and design practices as a design studio, whilst creating restorative interior spaces and healthful environments for our clients. Our recently completed Highgate residential project fuses our signature aesthetic and philosophy with Salutogenic Design principles to create a home-retreat for the owners, who wished to actively pursue health and invest in their own contentment. Salutogenic Design’s simple aim is to build structures that make people healthier, a principle that originated in the construction of many of the world’s leading modern hospitals.

House of Grey commissioned and co-designed the master bed, bedside tables, wardrobe and vanity unit with Sebastian Cox. We chose materials such as ebonised oak and blackened ash which improve air quality by moderating humidity, to improve breathing. We chose English cedar wood for the wardrobe interior to prevent moths – utilising nature’s wisdom to eliminate common problems. Thought-through details such as these culminate in an ongoing contentment in a space that improves human health with day-to-day use.

Every element is considered for its inherent values and how it positively contributes to the impact of the interior scheme from the perspective of both human and ecological health. The master bed has been upholstered using a combination of rubberised hair – this material comprises of animal hair (typically a mix of hog, cattle, horse short hairs) with natural latex and layered with a 100% wool wadding. Our choice of bedding and mattress from NaturalMat is harvested according to Fair Trade principles and made from 100% biodegradable resources, so it can return to the Earth as nature intended.

浴室的墙壁使用了Tadelakt饰面――这是一种纯天然的、以石灰为基底并借助皂溶液进行密封的饰面，在满足光滑性和透气性的同时亦提供了兼顾美感和实用、清洁与健康的居住环境。作为一款材料而言，Tadelakt可谓是House of Grey工作室一贯追求的循环健康设计先锋理念的完美体现。
We utilised Tadelakt for the bathroom walls as it is completely natural, lime-based and sealed with a soap solution – providing a smooth, breathable ﬁnish and a beautiful yet practical, clean and healthy living environment. As a material, Tadelakt plaster is the perfect incarnation of the House of Grey’s pioneering philosophy: Circular Salutogenic Design.
Tadelakt is still made using ancient processes passed on and taught by the Moroccan masters. The minimum amount of energy is used during its production, it releases 80% less CO2 that cement-based ﬁnishes and any CO2 that is generated gets re-absorbed by the lime – which means it doesn’t escape and harm the atmosphere. Tadelakt is also biodegradable, so once it’s disposed of in the future it will gradually sink back into the earth, or it can be broken down, recycled and used in new mortars.

House of Grey designed this bespoke Wave vanity unit, which is made using a Tadelakt Plaster coating.
The bath and sink are made of carefully selected sands and unﬁred clays mixed with pigments and minerals blended to become a high-quality natural plaster which is able to breathe, providing a healthy alternative to mass-produced bathroom ranges.
In the WC we used Clayworks two tone (Moon Tonal and Buff) on the walls with brass inlay. Clayworks was born from the founders’ love of nature and belief in natural, sustainable building practices. This material is 100% natural, absorbs toxins, zero VOC emission, low embodied carbon, 100% compostable and recyclable.
