This award-winning project is located in an elegant Victorian Mansion block near Kensington Palace. To accommodate the needs of their family, the client purchased two lateral apartments situated around an internal courtyard. The transformation of the properties, with a modern yet minimal aesthetic, required substantial structural changes to completely reconfigure the properties into a loft-style family home. A hallway is the central aspect of the design with floor to ceiling glass panels emanating natural light. The new design comprises an open-plan dining and reception area with a separate kitchen that can be opened onto the dining space, four bedrooms, a family room with home cinema, study and guest bedroom all flowing from the central corridor. Contemporary built-in joinery and furniture enhance the open space. A secluded guest bedroom, a walk-in wardrobe and unique desk space cleverly combines form and function. The reduced palette of materials serves as a canvas for the client’s display of art and striking furniture.
