A NEWCASTLE interior design specialist has launched a new brand to ensure top-of-the-range cars can be parked in suitable surroundings.

Design North, based in Newcastle, has launched Hypercave, a brand which will design super garages for super cars.

“The idea came after I was asked by the client of a friend to design the interior of a garage in the south of France. The client had this huge selection of supercars and wanted his garage to reflect how special his collection is,” said Scott Stewart, who, along with Jacqui Martin, co-founded Design North.

“This car collection was a stunning mix of modern-day Hypercars, such as Porsche 918’s, La Ferrari’s and Bugatti Chirons.

The client was also a huge comic book fan, so Mr Newton and Ms Martin used this love for superheroes and supercars as inspirations, leading them to establish the new brand after positive feedback.

“The idea is to create very individual spaces based on the clients’ cars or interests. One concept we’re working on for a north east client is going to have a very sci-fi look based on the evolution of the electric supercar – or hypercar. We’re working with a glass material which throbs with light – it’s a real space-age concept and will be amazing,” Mr Newton added.

The company specialises in interior design for the workplace, healthcare and learning environments, and is based on Hoults Yard, Byker.

The Yard is owned and run by HyHubs, whose MD Charlie Hoult said: “Just like Design North, HyHubs is all about creating properties with personality. I love Scott and Jacqui’s Hypercave project – a simple idea aimed at an aspirational and affluent market, and I’m sure it will be a success."
