Octagon Bespoke: ‘No two homes are the same, nor are any two clients’
Founded over 40 years ago, Octagon pioneered the concept of luxury house building with a straightforward, but revolutionary idea: build a select number of exceptional homes of the highest quality.
The Octagon Bespoke division is incredibly unique, in that they are able to offer clients support from the very first steps of finding a plot of land and obtaining local planning permissions, to design, specification and everything in between. The skilled team are also able to facilitate a major renovation or extension – the possibilities are endless, and they approach every potential project as a brand new challenge.
Octagon Bespoke Director, John Pope explains; “It’s very difficult to summarise the Bespoke division, as the day to day really is so varied! We could be designing a beautiful eight bedroom family home in Weybridge, renovating a Victorian townhouse in Mayfair, or extending a penthouse apartment on the banks of the Thames.
“Our reputation within London and the Home Counties is new build, because that’s what the majority of our speculative homes have been in the past. But we’ve recently completed a historical renovation on a Grade II* listed building in the heart of Wimbledon alongside English Heritage – we can do it all.”
One of the biggest joys – and challenges – is that no two homes are the same, nor are any two clients.
“Working to the client’s brief is the most important thing, and can be especially difficult if they don’t know what it is they want – there can be a lot of reading between the lines, but with such an experienced team, we’re always full of suggestions and ideas that we think will work.”
