Visiting the house of Sophie Hicks, designer of the Chloé boutiques.

In 1987, after working as fashion editor at Tatler and Vogue, Sophie Hicks embarked on a career in architecture, going on to design some 100 Chloé boutiques, stores for Nottingham’s own Paul Smith, and—most notably—Yohji Yamamoto’s stunning Paris flagship. In this new film, the latest of our much-loved In Residence series, the architect guides us around her minimal Kensington home—one that belies its proximity to the beating heart of a major city.

Hicks has described her own style as “cold but warm,” making use of rough finishings and sparse, minimal spaces to provide a place for light—both natural and artificial—to play.
