Helen Green in conversation with Dalham London

Helen Green is delighted to announce that the private residence in Sloane Square has featured on Dalham London, with a Q&A from Dalham London Director Alex Casaki and Helen Green Design’s Studio Director Alexandra Jurkiewicz.

The article reads:

Overlooking one of London’s most fashionable roads, running parallel to Sloane Street, this large lateral apartment offers skyline views across the desirable Chelsea area.

During the extensive renovations, Dalham London advised and oversaw the two-year development with Helen Green Design Studio from the initial design stage through to the full completion and handover. Since completion, the property has remained in the Dalham London portfolio of Household & Vacant Managed properties.

Dalham London worked closely with both the owners and the designers to ensure delivery was on track, eased any concerns, and acted as a conduit between all parties.

Here, we hear from Dalham London Director Alex Casaki and Helen Green Design’s Studio Director Alexandra Jurkiewicz about the project, its challenges, and how the companies collaborated to create a standout prime London property that has delivered in every way.

Thanks to Alex Casaki and Alexandra for joining us! Before we jump into the project – Alexandra, could you introduce yourself and Helen Green Design?

Alexandra:
I am the Studio Director at Helen Green Design. I joined as a Senior Designer a few years ago and gradually transitioned into my current role. As the Studio Director, I oversee the day-to-day operations of the design side, leading my team and driving the creative process. Helen Green Design is part of Allect Design Group, so we can deliver full turnkey services like architecture and delivery along with our design expertise.

Each project begins with my vision and ideas, which are shaped by a detailed brief from the client. Sometimes, the briefs are quite vague, requiring us to read between the lines and decipher subtle cues. This experience has honed my understanding of clients’ needs, especially when faced with privacy concerns or language and cultural barriers. Working with Alex Casaki and the Dalham team helped bridging these gaps, ensuring seamless communication and understanding.

Tell us how Helen Green was selected as the designer for the project.

Alexandra:
Our involvement with this project marked a significant milestone in our collaboration with Alex Casaki and his Dalham London team. Before this, we had engaged in various collaborative efforts; however, this project presented the perfect alignment of the right client and the ideal property to allow us to undertake a special project. Our initial encounter with the client occurred towards the end of 2021, amidst the challenges posed by the pandemic. Our pitch meeting was an illuminating experience. We delved deep into our design arsenal and put our heart and soul into it. It was nerve-wracking, but we felt an immediate connection with the client.

Following our appointment to the project, we explored the property comprehensively, seizing the opportunity for face-to-face interactions with the family. These interactions transcended discussions on design preferences; they offered glimpses into the client’s lifestyles, habits, and preferences, crucial elements that shape our design narrative.
