We have handed over to a private client their new family home, created for them in an early Georgian terraced linked to a mews house in central London. The Listed Grade II building had for the last century been used as offices by a firm of solicitors and BFF secured Planning Permission and Listed Building Consent for the scheme.
The house, over 5 floors, was completely refurbished installing new services, contemporary bathrooms and providing a workspace for the client. A new “heart of the home” has been achieved by creating a glazed enclosure in a light well, allowing a spacious kitchen, dining and living area on one floor. Purpose built joinery throughout contributes to the modern, quality but understated feel in accordance with the Client’s brief.
The property does not have a garden so a new roof terrace has been created, nestled between the retained original rear roof pitches and set 1.1m below the line of the front ridge so that it is not visible from the street in a sensitive area of London. It will provide the family with a private oasis of calm in the middle of the bustling city.
