Design Services
A world-class property developer with a bespoke division and a new interior design service

When Octagon was founded in 1980, the aim was to design and build exceptional residential properties in prime locations to the highest standards of specification and finish. Forty years later and the award-winning company is still doing just that, with brand new and beautifully restored homes in and around London and the Home Counties starting from £625,000, rising to more than £20 million for a super mansion. From their riverside office on the Thames overlooking Hampton Court Palace, the talented team of in-house designers and architects are responsible for designing unique homes that retain the unmistakable Octagon style.

We love to work with clients to help find their style, whilst contributing our expertise to create spaces that they will love

New this year is the company’s comprehensive interior design service (available to all Octagon clients purchasing a new home or building a home through the Bespoke division), whereby owners work directly with the in-house team to create a personalised scheme that mirrors the magnificent architecture. ‘Many of our clients want a home that is ready to move in to from day one, and this of course includes designing and dressing the inside of their property,’ says Rachel Hall, head of the interior design team. ‘We love to work with clients to help find their style, whilst contributing our expertise to create spaces that they will love. Our established relationships with suppliers across Britain and Europe means we can offer the very best in bespoke furniture, creating an interior that is just as special as the property itself.


Many properties are designed and built to clients’ precise requirements under the Octagon Bespoke division. Past projects include large custom homes on some of the most exclusive gated estates and roads, such as St George’s Hill in Weybridge, the Wentworth Estate in Virginia Water and the Crown Estate in Oxshott, as well as on the prime leafy streets of south-west and north-west London. Handing over the keys to a client at the end of a build is not the end of the relationship with Octagon either. A specialist after sales team is in place to make the process of moving in as easy and enjoyable as possible. Armed with a black book of trusted suppliers and local service providers, from dog walkers and cleaners to nurseries and tutors, they have exceptional connections and local area knowledge.

Although best known for building one-of-a-kind properties, Octagon Bespoke also has an experienced team dedicated to significant home improvements, and welcome projects from £1 million. For instance, currently in-progress is the complete refurbishment of a Grade II-listed Regency home in Knightsbridge, which involves meticulously restoring the original elements both inside and out, marrying the design to the neighbouring homes along the terrace. Inside, Octagon is taking moulds of original details to replicate throughout, whilst integrating modern technologies.

Surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens, Octagon’s classic exteriors are combined with energy efficient, contemporary interiors featuring the latest high tech gadgetry. Over the years many purchasers have returned since building their first homes in the 1980s – surely the only proof needed that this company has a winning formula within the world of property development.
