Finishes & Applications
After various iterations in use, including its tenure as an army base, the Grade II listed Benham Park has now been sympathetically restored as a luxury wellness retreat. Guests will be able to hire this unique location to enjoy the very finest treatments for rest and recuperation, the luxury of absolute privacy, and 5-star comfort in a setting informed by the past and designed for the future.
Albion Nord is a London-based interior design and project management studio founded in 2017.
As part of the design team for Benham Park, Albion Nord employed an historian in order to gain in-depth insights into who lived in the house, "It was important to bring together old and new to create a home that is respectful to the building's history and its functionality in the 21st century." - Ottalie Stride, Creative Director Albion Nord. Portraits of the previous residents and guests were used as inspiration for colour schemes in the bedrooms.Albion Nord
The brief was ‘classic contemporary'. The use of sympathetic, natural materials was important as the designers were keen to reflect Benham’s beautiful countryside surroundings, keeping it comfortable, usable and fresh.
Albion Nord were careful to select items that feel natural in their surroundings. Guests can enjoy the open arms and comfort of bespoke Chesterfield sofas, perch on the expansive ottomans in smooth saddle stitched leather and relax in the upholstery elegance of the formal reception room.
