Secret Spaces

We have developed an obsession with secret spaces that we come across on our travels, especially those that are perfect representations of their occupant. These spaces have evolved out of a love of a subject or a natural style, rather than through the intention to create a ‘designed interior’. Often these spaces begin with a hobby or a passion, anything from motorbikes to antiques, and develop freely unfettered by design ‘rules’. This natural and honest feeling is something we try to bring into all of Barlow & Barlow’s design projects, making sure that the client is reflected in every space we create.
