CONCEPT OF SPACE - Ritual retreat - 2000
Ritual Retreat - it’s time to treat your body and soul.
We all know about the benefits of a healthy diet and exercising, so why not place equal consideration on how our living space can affect the mind, body and spirit?
Claire Denise Harrigan; Multimedia Artist and health/wellbeing specialist from London, teams up with a Swedish interior architect Asa Oveland to create a holistically designed space aimed at enhancing people’s lifestyle while being environmentally friendly. The key features of this Ritual Retreat concept are: The heart of the home is Dazie: a central, computerised home management lighting system designed by Morban Intelligent Living.
The house is heated by an energy efficient system designed by Eco-Gas, using solar panels and water based underfloor heating. Low toxic sustainable materials are used throughout the house, including natural paints, plasters, & sheep’s wool insulation. The concept integrates colour therapy into the design through LED lighting and a multipurpose ‘Happy Shower’ that washes you in colour as you cleanse.
The Zen Den
Underfloor heated polished concrete, keeps your feet delightfully warm in the winter months, and cool in the summer. A large open planned high spec kitchen sits in the North East corner, with a hand made leather and teak bar separating the chill out zone complimented with a 42in plasma screen and surround system. A flexible dining table or office area sits infront of the patio doors (south facing), which open fully to create a feeling of bringing the outside in, ideal for Summer entertaining and great light in the grey winter months.
As you climb the Teak staircase, held by white bamboo, you approach a large hallway, with a pebble cut outs lit with sensor lighting, a white budda sits peacefully in the corner and a large mirror creates a feeling of space. Full height doors, with push/pull franchi door handles lead the way to a
Super king size sleeping platform - latest high tech sleeping system from Nikken enhances restful sleep and assists in the journey to complete wellness.

The Stark WC and Bidet sit suspended over another pebble cut out, and the chandlier sparkle over the handmade basin and teak cabinet.

Review from latest guest "The house was in excellent condition, spacious and thoroughly clean. The decor is imaginative whilst still being thoroughly practical. All appliances worked well, including reliable fast Internet connection. I had been looking for a West London property, but the location was highly convenient for central London with a bus stop one minute away direct for Oxford Circus.
Claire was prompt and helpful in responding to all inquiries before and during the rental period."
The South East England region
London - rich with art, architecture, culture, markets, restuarants....you name it ...london has it!
Central London/Zone 2
Fantastic location in a hip and culturally diverse area of London. In the immediate area is Roman road market and Victoria park. Take the no 8 bus towards Hoxton and the lively local street markets of Columbia Road flower market, Brick Lane, Broadway Market, Spitalfields and Pettycoat Lane. Much loved by artists and city financiers alike the area offers vibrant restaurants, music venues, bars and night life as well as renowned galleries and museums - the Cube and Geffrye Museum being perhaps best known.
Alternatively take a leisurely stroll through the City to St Pauls, over the Millennium Bridge to Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and have some lunch at The Tate Modern. Or head West and wonder around antique Bloomsbury, explore the wonderful treasures of the British Museum and pop in at one of the four Inns of Court to get a feel for medieval London. If you are feeling energetic there are many cycle paths along the canals which are great for poodling around on a lazy Sunday with a pit stop at the local pub.
Got to do some work? The apartment is just 20 minutes away from the financial district and Liverpool Street. There are excellent train connections plus 24hr bus links for easy access to Central London.
Your choices are endless as the area truly has something for everyone.

"Beautifully decorated, great location - fantastic stay!"
I stayed here with 5 friends, visiting London for the weekend. It's in a great location - on our short visit it was ideal for visiting Spitalfields market and the Columbia Road flower market; as well as getting into central London easily for a night out.
The house itself is really spacious, and beautifully done. Every single room is great. Sophisticated, but really comfortable also, I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone!

"Perfect atmosphare & great access"
Our group of 8 people stayed in this lovely house for a week and can totally recommend it to others. The main thing was that we all slept really well - there must be something done really right in the planning. We got a lot of inspiration from the decoration of the house as everything is so well thought through. The house is very well located and has easy access to public transportation.
We would definately recommend this place to our friend and would stay there again if we're in London again.
