Zaha Hadid Architects first London interior for two decades explodes within the Georgian restoration of the ground floor at Home House private members club. The furniture installations, in saturated Georgian colours, flow through the bar, entrance, and reception rooms to create an interior landscape of sculptural islands. The sinuous forms follow the fluid geometries of natural systems and distortions. Whilst further informed by the ergonomic considerations of a social environment, each piece is conceived through the morphological language that remains its primary formal determination.

The furniture installations at Home House demonstrate a new type of living environment that continues the investigations of dynamic space making, creating a new open aesthetic that plays with the user’s interaction. James Wyatt’s original programmed spaces are recalled in the functionality of the composition’s fluid and fresh forms. The islands float between history and future, inviting a dialogue between past and present, elasticity and solidity and craftsmanship spanning three centuries A new sensibility has evolved out of a refined knowledge of CNC milling and material technologies, allowing us to develop our design techniques and further contribute to the current global discourse in digital design and fabrication. A unique dichotomy is realized within Home House between this new formal language of morphology and dynamic forces and the characteristic orthogonal programming of its Georgian envelope.
