KAREN MAZE

For Karen, RFR’s project architect, comfort and functionality rank equally with style; attention to detail is paramount and rather than following a generic “house style”, she starts every project with a clean canvas, always ensuring that the result reflects the individual client and the way they live. She cites Christian Liaigre as an influence on her timeless and classic style, often layered with modern accents and luxurious detailing.

With a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Newcastle University, Karen has 17 years’ experience working as an architect for internationally renowned architectural design practice Collett Zarzycki and interior designer Kelly Hoppen before setting up her own practice focused on seamlessly combining architecture with interior design and detailing.

Karen’s previous projects have included: a ski chalet (fit for a princess) in St Moritz; private houses in Knightsbridge, Kensington, Notting Hill and Battersea; residential projects further afield in South Africa, Israel, Beirut and Manchester; and the spa at The Grove in Hertfordshire.
