OFF THE SHELF

WITH a lustrous career spanning more than 30 years, Collett-Zarzycki’s portfolio reads like a lesson in good design. Theby Dominic Bradbury. Be introduced to the names to know behind this company: Zambian-born Anthony Collett, who honed his skills studying for a master’s in environmental design at the Royal College of Art, and his creative partner, engineer Andrzej Zarzycki, along with their team of architects, designers and artisans. Their style is a joy to pore over as they move effortlessly between genres, always letting the character of the building direct the look. Highlights include a veneered oak-panelled home in Hampshire, built in an area of natural beauty with a construction process that sought to reduce the project’s carbon footprint, and a swoon-worthy pool house in France, built from local stone and bedecked with an integrated fireplace for when the cool night air draws in. And take a sneak peek at Anthony Collett’s illustration of the much-anticipated, soon-to-be-unveiled project, The Glebe, a series of individually designed homes in a former Edwardian school building in Chelsea, London.
