MoreySmith is one of Britain s foremost interior design practices. The first book to showcase its work, Renew looks back on two decades of ground-breaking, award-winning projects. Since founding the business in 1993, Linda Morey Smith has built a reputation for achieving the unachievable, transforming the dark, derelict and uninspiring into light-flooded, sophisticated and uplifting spaces. From London s Capital Radio, MoreySmith s first commission, to current clients such as Moet Hennessy, Renew follows the practice s visions as they take shape, always staying true to the original vision.
Among MoreySmith s trademarks is the ability to work with difficult period buildings, opening them up and injecting them with warmth while remaining sensitive to the original structure and allowing it to shine through. With a Foreword by Professor Jeremy Myerson, Director of the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design at the Royal College of Art, and an essay by Henrietta Thompson, Editor-at-Large for Wallpaper*, Renew explores the process through which this is achieved, also exploring the practice s frequent collaborations with artists and the working methods that have ensured a dedicated loyalty when it comes to both clients and workforce over the years.
Whether designing a home or a corporate headquarters, people are central to every MoreySmith project, and this ability to infuse a building with a sense of humanity is behind truly successful interior architecture. Renew reveals the vision, attention to detail, technical expertise and commitment necessary to make it a reality.
