Case Study: Casa Botelho
Casa Botelho, is “part interior design practice, part the most fabulous home in London and part furniture design” says the eponymous character behind this beautiful home, Mr. João Botelho.
Having completely remodelled all four floors of this Victorian mansion, João has transformed this previously tired and tatty home into a unique, dramatic space, effortlessly blending timeless, period features with contemporary design to create‘“masculine-luxe” throughout.

A Love For Lighting
João’s passion for lighting is irrefutable and his appreciation of how lighting can transform spaces is very apparent throughout Casa Botelho. João is truly a master at creating drama and contrast within a room through the clever use of light. In fact, if there’s anyone who can get away with referring to filament bulbs as ‘utterly sexy’, it’s João.
It makes sense then, that a self-confessed lover of all things ‘James Bond’ would need a smart lighting system able to bring such visions to fruition.
When asked what he particularly enjoys about having home automation in his home, João remarked: “Loxone controls not only lighting but also the under-floor heating, cameras, music, front door lock and electric blinds. I can even open the front door for you while on holidays in the Maldives; how cool is that! We loved working with the Loxone team and prices were much more affordable than any other systems in the market.”
Sumptuously furnished, Casa Botelho oozes style from wall to wall. Impeccable attention to detail is visible everywhere, from the period coving to the breathtaking fireplaces.
