Scope of Build: The complete renovation of a lower-ground floor apartment neglected by its previous owners. We reconfigured the existing inefficient space to create a fourth bedroom, and removed false ceilings where possible, and levelled floors, replacing the existing single-glazed windows with warmer double-glazed conservation timber sashes. An original leaded bay window from the 1800s was preserved and encapsulated in a new double-glazed unit. New wet rooms were created (including a combined shower and bath enclosure), with frameless glass screens to make the bathrooms easier to keep clean, and less visually cluttered. The kitchen and island, ribbed oak and marble media unit, study shelving and desk, master bedroom dressing table and headboard and bathroom cabinets were designed and hand-made uniquely for this project.

Outcome: A sanctuary just off the busy Holland Park Avenue, with light textures and colours and plenty of storage nooks, cupboards, and drawers making a clean, calm, and uncluttered space. Plastered-in ceiling lights make the ceilings feel even taller than conventional downlights with bezels. The kitchen extractor is disguised with a cage for additional storage and the display of glassware.
