Planning has been submitted for an exciting new build mews house in a fashionable part of Kensington with a brief to create a stunning, if compact, family home
The plan is to demolish an existing property with little architectural merit and build in its place a contemporary building designed to enhance its surroundings whilst complementing an identical adjacent property.
The new designs will be constructed using the highest quality Petersen Tegl brick, combined with an abundance of glass along one side of the house to create a feeling of light and space and to maximise outside space which is currently underused.
Dyer Grimes proposes a three storey 4 bedroom house, with a state of the art cinema room and gym requiring major excavation of the basement to create another floor. To the side of the house a small courtyard will be landscaped to create an oasis of calm, integrated into the design resulting in an additional “outside room”.
The property will be a landmark development for Dyer Grimes and a major planning achievement, not least as it sits adjacent to a TFL tube line and in a Conservation Area, requiring rigorous negotiations with local planners.
