“We care about everything we do, design detail and craftmanship is everything to us”
Marc Stchedroff, MD


The practice is particularly skilled at altering, extending, and restoring period buildings including Georgian, Regency, Victorian & Edwardian. A good number of GII and GII* Georgian and Regency buildings have passed through OLBC’s care.

OLBC is renowned for its timeless, English interior design. From refined town houses and country pads to apartments, OLBC’s interiors radiate palpable calm and are celebrated for their new English style. Their commissions come largely through word of mouth, and they have developed a reputation for delivering a seamless mix of high quality traditional and contemporary interiors.

“OLBC achieved the impossible turning our Georgian two bedroom Brompton Cross cottage into a stunning family home whilst it still looked like a sweet double fronted cottage from the front. It is our favourite house it is such a relaxing space to be in.”
Martin Shields – client


Their philosophy is to inspire and delight discerning clients with an unwavering commitment to intelligent design, traditional craftsmanship and beautiful materials.

OLBC designs tend toward a hybrid layered aesthetic, incorporating a carefully curated selection of contemporary work juxtaposed with antiques  and vintage pieces. Each interior is an opportunity to play with mood, by adding a freshness of texture and depth. The design team, led by Design Director Rosie Caley, takes pride in breathing life back into old buildings and in producing high quality interiors for their clients, which are suitable for modern living.

“We are passionate about creating beautiful homes that fit the lifestyle of our clients and their families. An elegant,  well-functioning floor plan is timeless, but design fashions come and go, so we aim to mix classic style with the occasional trend to give each home a natural sense of evolving over time” – Rosie Caley, Design Director


OLBC have an old school approach to construction, preferring to use key in-house trades where possible.  They have, over the decades, built up superb relationships with a large number of the finest artisans to provide a true atelier service.

Collaborative working

OLBC take pride in working as a team and are very happy to work with any consultants and contractors that share our passion and commitment to our projects.


Meticulous archival research is an essential step when OLBC embarks on projects involving heritage projects.

You can get a feel for the level of detail that their team has unearthed from archives all around the country and have put together for local schools for fun in our From The Archives project pages on our website.


With their own in-house basement and structural teams, they are able to rely less on subcontractors than their competitors. Meaning they are able to start projects without long mobilisation periods and because their own teams know the OLBC working methods and system, they are able to work in very sensitive locations.

The OLBC teams cover everything from structural design to indoor swimming pools and wine rooms.
