The Brief

The home: A three bedroom apartment set in a listed building in one of London’s most sought after residential areas.

The challenge: Our clients wanted some fundamental changes to this property in order to modernize it including raising the ceilings to achieve a floor to ceiling height of 4 metres. This, in turn, presented another significant challenge of replacing 11 sash windows through the property. In addition, the client wanted a ‘state of the art’ smart home with everything controlled via Control 4/ Lutron software. The property was further enhanced with bespoke wrap-around joinery including full height bespoke doors with concealed hinges and a parquet floor throughout that had to conform to strict sound proofing standards.
