Combe Royal The Brief

Tasked with creating a 21st-century family home in an 18th-century Grade II listed building, the OCCA Design team rose to the challenge, creating contemporary interiors that respond to modern-day life.

Each room was carefully considered and detailed to deliver a welcoming warmth and homeliness that is often difficult to achieve in period properties.

Combe Royal Our approach

Our approach was inspired by the Frank Gerry mantra that “Architecture should speak of its time and place but yearn for timelessness.”

We achieved this by exploring, respecting, and celebrating elements of the past and the beautiful Jacobean revival style of this outstanding building, while keeping the property dynamic & alive internally, creating a bridge to the future and family life in the 21st century.

Happy Endings The Results

We are delighted with the transformation of Combe Royal, the property has become a wonderful, welcoming family home.
