From the outside, Brigitta Spinocchia Freund’s three-storey townhouse looks like any other on her leafy road in west London. But step inside and you discover an incredible basement conversion going down not one, not two, but three floors, to a swimming pool. A circular see-through lift whizzes the interior architect, her investor husband, Michael, and their three children up and down the six floors.
Spinocchia Freund is known for creating highly idiosyncratic interiors, something that is very evident in her own home. Before starting her own business she was creative director of the property developers Candy & Candy. Twelve years ago she launched her own interiors practice, where she oversees everything from floor plans to the patterns on porcelain dinner services.
