Thorp is a multi-disciplinary design studio comprised of a team of highly creative architects and designers with a wealth of experience and a heritage that spans five decades. Based on London’s Sloane Street, it takes a proactive approach to designing and managing all aspects of a project: architectural and interior design, furnishing and decoration, art curation, gardens, and landscaping. The studio has an extraordinary client list, including English landowners, world leaders and financiers, many of whom own several homes around the world and ask Thorp to design them all.
Typically, Thorp focuses on large turnkey projects for private clients in England and internationally; these range from a client purchasing a green field site to the refurbishment of an existing building. In addition, the practice also undertakes commercial commissions such as restaurants, gyms, and even, recently, a state-of-the-art horse box with living accommodation for both the animals and humans. From the outset, the team works collaboratively, designing bespoke buildings with wholly integrated, united interiors that respond to the client’s unique needs. The brand’s director, Philippa Thorp, believes that indoor and outdoor spaces should balance each other perfectly, so gardens and landscaping are designed to complement a client’s home and their lifestyle, as well as reinforcing a connection to nature and creating a sense of natural harmony.

Current projects that are in the final installation stages include two large new build turnkey residences: the first, a private mountain house in the USA’s exclusive Yellowstone Club and the second, a villa on Lake Como. Both were commissioned at the start of lockdown and have been completed despite the many challenges brought by the pandemic. At present, the studio is in the early design stages of a large lakeside residence in Connecticut, the refurbishment of a family home near New York, and a new build holiday home within an exclusive private club on the coast outside Lisbon. Closer to home in England, the studio is undertaking renovations and refurbishments of four private homes for clients.
