Features on Shangri-la
Since the completion of Shangri-la in the summer of 2018, it has been featured in a number of newspapers and magazines. We are immensely proud of these features which showcase the unique combination of well-considered architecture, original interior design and breathtaking location. The features show what is special about the house: we have never sought to produce a home-from-home but a truly different, and dare we say, inspiring holiday experience, combining the very best in modern design with one of the most remote and beautiful coastal locations in Norfolk. Fear not, you don't need to be 'into' design to love the house, you'll just love it for being a wonderful space in a wonderful place...
The Times featured 30 fabulous post-lockdown UK stays.
The Evening Standard feature on Shangri-la, was one in a series of 'Cool Stays' in the UK. The feature discussed the 'Scandi' design of the house and the location: just behind the dunes within meters of one of the UK's finest beaches.
enki magazine features truly inspiring examples of modern architecture and design. This feature discussed how a new type of minimal, modernist and stylish holiday home is emerging: beautifully finished, architect-designed properties in glorious locations. The article references some of the best, domestic holiday-home architecture, again discussing the houses as an experience rather than a mere place to stay. Just to be featured in such an article was a real privilege!
House Beautiful is possibly the 'go to' magazine for interior design inspiration, so what could have been better than to have a 4-page spread in the February 2019 edition? The article talks about how Shangri-la combines the Scandinavian aesthetic with mid-century modern design and takes the concept of the beach house to the max. The article describes how to 'steal the style' and copy elements such as the unfussy and light interiors. It goes on to explain the creative use of lighting and the careful and coordinated use of vibrant yellow to off-set the muted washed plywood.
