This mews house was redeveloped for our developer client as a professional rental property. The interior had not been updated for many years, and was impractical, with a small enclosed kitchen and dark first floor courtyard space. The aim of the project was to create a flexible residence that could be used by a family or as a professional let. This involved a complete refurbishment throughout, adding a large luxurious family bathroom at ground floor, and refitting 2 en suite bathrooms on the top floor, each with a distinct design and character. One of the key moves of the design was to raise the courtyard garden from first to second floor and add a structural glass floor to allow light to flood the open plan living space. To help connect the kitchen to the main space, the breakfast bar opening was fitted with a concealed fire curtain allowing a more sociable and flexible family space. I worked as Designer and Project Architect on Kensington Mews whilst employed at Curtis Wood Architects. The house was comopleted in 2009. The main contractor was Denis Kostenko.
