DescriptionOver the last 30 years designers Anthony Collett and Andrzej Zarzycki have built an extraordinary portfolio of residential work around the world. From London town houses to Tuscan retreats to new build vacation homes on the French Riviera, Collett-Zarzycki’s work encompasses architecture, interiors and landscape design, with an emphasis on refined spaces, crafted materials and bespoke furniture. This rare capacity to span the entire spectrum of design has given rise to homes of great cohesion and charm, as well as originality and individuality.
With backgrounds in the art world and engineering, as well as formative years in both Africa and the UK, Anthony Collett and Andrzej Zarzycki bring a wealth of experience to bear upon projects that are defined by their unique sense of character, developed in response to site, setting and the considered needs of their clients.
Richly illustrated with beautiful photographs, detailed drawings and concept sketches of their work, Collett-Zarzycki: Houses & Interiors provides a thoughtful and comprehensive account of is the atelier’s work. Whether the commission is for a penthouse interior, a town house reinvention, or a new build country or coastal home, there are common themes to their work, with an emphasis on craft, materiality, attention to detail and timeless elegance, fusing contemporary living with Neoclassical, Arts & Crafts and Modernist influences.
The book offers insights into the influences and inspiration behind the firm’s work, into founding partners Collett and Zarzycki’s unique collaborative working practices, their ability to work across a range of forms and scales and their use of contemporary artisan craftsmen in the bespoke fixtures, fittings and furniture which are integral to many of their projects.
