PROJECT: The Lakes by YOO, Cotsworlds, UK
DEVELOPER: YOO and The Raven Group
INTERIOR DESIGNERS: Jade Jagger for YOO, Kelly Hoppen for YOO, YOO Studio
Awarded Highly Commended Interior Design Show Home at the UK Property Awards 2012 and Bronze award for Best Luxury Development at the What House Awards, 2008/9, this stunning second home development is idyllically situated on six clear water lakes, surrounded by 650 acres of beautiful Cotswold countryside. Cantilevered over the lakes, each glass and timber house offers an urban level of comfort and sophistication in an exceptional rural setting. The practical and well-designed interiors leave plenty of scope for owners to reflect their personal style, some taking advantage of YOO’s links with esteemed designers. In one such case an Anglepoise® Giant 1227™ floor lamp has been installed in the central living space, its vivid colour providing striking contrast against the dark wood floor and painted walls and stark white upholstery.
