Douglas Mackie studied architecture at Cambridge University. After a year spent working in New York, the way to become an interior designer became clear. The patrician apartments of the upper east side had infinitely more appeal than the daily grind of door schedules and drainage plans in a Manhattan office.
Mackie came back to Cambridge, and completed the Diploma in architecture in 1988. He worked as perspective artist, and architectural assistant where his skills as a draftsman remained in demand in the pre CAD rendering days.
We present you some of his most staggering projects, a true inspiration source for those who love the craft.
An extraordinary house, just outside London, with Tudor origins. The project was developed as a direct response to their clients’ collection of 20th century British Art. Many pieces of contemporary furniture and textiles were commissioned uniquely for the project.
An 18th century lateral conversion in the heart of Marylebone, extensively renovated over a one year period. Contemporary art, antique textiles and custom made furniture combine to create a sophisticated and comfortable home.
A major refurbishment of a 6 storey townhouse, the house was designed in response to our clients’ brief as a classic English home. Much of the furniture was commissioned from English craftsmen and combined with 18th and 19th-century antiques.
A classic double fronted stucco house, created based around the clients’ art collection. Antique and modern are combined; custom made furniture set alongside antiques.
A grade 2 listed house – Douglas Mackie and his team worked closely with their clients building their collection of modern British Art. The paintings were the starting point of each room; a contemporary take on a classic English country house.
