Tell us a bit more about you, and this project
Pfeiffer Design is an interior design studio with a difference. Female-led, we are passionate about generating ideas and solutions, helping our clients create interior spaces that meet their exact requirements. Our designers manage interior architecture and FF&E projects from initial concept and architectural planning, through technical design and on-site project coordination to final installation and styling. We’ve built our reputation on reliability, transparency, and a friendly, professional approach.
Our experienced, qualified team of interior architects are professional and well-versed in dealing with the intricacies and pitfalls of large scale high-end residential projects. We are a team of 10 and have a specialist in every aspect of interior design including, but not limited to, sanitary design, bespoke joinery design, lighting design, finishes specification, tiling and FF&E. Our Senior Designers are proficient in dealing with main contractors, architects and structural engineers and can work within a wider professional team.
We designed and purpose built our design studio for our business and for our team of interior designers. The Studio is designed to be used in a flexible, out of the ordinary way, not only providing space for our team to work day-to-day, but also as a showroom space for our clients and somewhere to display and store all our samples, and extensive fabric library.
As the Studio is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the exterior of the structure needed to be in-keeping with the adjacent agricultural buildings. In contrast, the interior is a contemporary open-plan design featuring an exposed steel-frame and ever-changing finishes to keep the studio feeling fresh and current.
The new design studio needed to provide ample space for our team of Interior Designers, having rapidly outgrown our previous studio. The principal spaces include a mezzanine floor for desks, kitchen/living area, bathroom, meeting room and ample space to host events and client presentations.
What stove has been installed?
We have installed the Stovax Studio 2 Freestanding wood burning stove.
Where in the property was the stove installed, and why that location?
The stove is installed in the Pfeiffer Design Studio and is beautifully framed by a feature wall of brick slips and provides the reception area with a focal point. Sustainability is important to us and reducing the carbon footprint of our Studio is something we considered throughout the design process. Alongside championing British suppliers and installing the latest sustainable technologies such as an air-source heat pump, enhanced insulation and rainwater harvesting system, we burn wood from the neighbouring agricultural land in our Stovax stove.
Which retailer did you go to for this product?
Sussex Fireplace Gallery, local to the Pfeffer Design studio and showroom.
What drew you to a Stovax stove?
We love the contemporary and striking look of the Stovax stove and how it is has a great performance of up to 80% efficiency.
Why is it important to your client to have a fireplace?
It is important for our clients to have a fireplace, as it’s a talking point, an organic element that is every changing and it brings people together. It not only aligns with our values of biophilic design and sustainability but also provides life and focus to any living space.
Any tips for other people renovating?
Don’t underestimate how long things will take, especially if you are doing an extensive renovation, and how much budget to allocate to your project. If you need a helping hand, we provide a comprehensive interior design service and can manage every element of your renovation from bespoke joinery design, lighting design, bathrooms, and specification of finishes, down to furniture, soft furnishings, and accessories. It can be overwhelming when there are so many decisions and choices to be made for every stage of the project and getting interior design professionals on board to curate the myriad of options out there may just be the key to a successful refurbishment project.
