Hollyoak House


In a first of its kind for Inko, we were tasked with creating luxurious retirement living show homes in Loughton that appealed to an age-exclusive audience, as well as a social communal club lounge for the residents to use at their leisure. It was really important we nailed the needs of this market through the design.


Looking to the surrounding area which is renowned for its elegance and style as well as the huge Epping Forest, this design was a culmination of softness, luxury and subtly bringing the outdoors inside, in a relaxing not-so-obvious way.


The final design is an exceptionally warm and welcoming environment, using neutrals with elegant touches of blue, pink and green to effortlessly pull the design elements together. White marble services and brushed brass detailing add a luxury feel alongside upholstered furniture in crowd-pleasing beiges, whites and greys. The launch was extremely successful, resulting in us designing and installing the manager's office, lobby, guest suite and plot moves.
