Best of 2017: Four Homes We Completed
Earl’s Court Mews
This once-dilapidated mews house is now a gallery-like showcase for luxury interior design with a contemporary twist on Italian style and materials. From the master suite that takes up the entire top floor down to the marble spa in the basement, this is one of our most visually exciting projects yet.
Grove End Road
Our clients initially planned to renovate the existing property on Grove End Road, but soon realised their ambitions couldn’t be contained within the current structure. Instead, they opted for a complete demolition and rebuild to create an enormous, five storey house, two of which are below ground.
This Victorian house is both a Building of Townscape Merit and within a Conservation Area. Despite the many levels of protection, we were permitted to tastefully extend this characterful house with a timber roofed brick extension with Crittal doors opening onto the garden – a welcome change to the unremarkable conservatory that was stuck onto the rear before.
This extra space has given our clients the room to reimagine the ground floor as a bright and colourful open plan space, and we’ll be sharing more photos soon.
For Mark and Suki, it was love at first site for this Georgian terraced townhouse, but it was almost the one that got away. Intimidated by the prospect of working on a Grade II listed house, they initially backed off. When it came back on the market, they couldn’t let it get away.
And it’s a good thing they didn’t. Cheltenham Terrace boasts one of the most unique fusions of contemporary and quintessential Georgian design, with striking interiors that only enhance the carefully preserved period features.
We’ll have more on Cheltenham Terrace soon, but for now you can click here to read our interview with Mark, back when the project was still underway.
