Rigby & Rigby Features in Great British Brands 2019 by Country and Townhouse
“Great British Brands is our annual digest of what is happening in the world of all things deliciously, beautifully British. We’re still in that slightly strange territory of not quite knowing what Brexit will bring and yet, judging by the resilience, enterprise and sheer doggedness of the best of our luxury goods companies, we feel that somehow they will continue doing the things they do best” – Lucia van der Post, editor
Great British Brands profiles Allect and its brands. Discussing Rigby & Rigby, the article says:
Rigby & Rigby is an international British design house that offers a full concept-to- completion service, combining development management, architecture, interior design and construction. To ensure clients’ properties are immaculately maintained once completed, Rigby & Rigby has a concierge service to help clients manage their properties. Private client commissions now represent the majority of Rigby & Rigby’s work.
The challenge in 2020 will be to continue to exceed clients’ expectations while constantly evolving the brand and design style so that it remains at the forefront of the industry. It is likely that clients will be investing more but wanting less; key pieces from the archives or collectables will become more on trend and interiors will focus around a strong narrative. By taking a holistic approach to design, the individual elements of architecture, interior design, lighting and technology are combined from the outset, the result being a fully resolved interior that is both usable and luxurious.
Rigby & Rigby is regarded as one of the finest professional services teams in the industry, a reputation maintained by constant research and in-depth analysis of the practice’s output. Rigby & Rigby has a special projects department currently deployed on three ‘hero’ projects – comprising properties worth upwards of £50 million.
One of its most important current projects is the redevelopment of a large villa in Notting Hill. It is a full-service commission involving all the elements of the practice’s expertise. It is an unusual project in that it involves the property’s change of use from commercial to residential. Rigby & Rigby has been commissioned to transform this former office building into a family home. One of the key elements of the plan is the restoration of the original architectural features of the house to restore the Grade II-listed building to its former glory.
This activity is not going unnoticed: Rigby & Rigby has recently been recognised with numerous industry awards. The interior design team has recently been awarded ‘Best Living Space – London’ for its penthouse project in Covent Garden.
With all three of its brands intent on building on their recent successes, the future looks bright for Allect. Despite recent uncertainties, Britain – and London in particular – remain a magnet for property investment and development. This is a cause for optimism for Helen Green Design, Lawson Robb and Rigby & Rigby in 2020.
