A new family home for a private client, created for them in an early Georgian terraced house linked to a mews house in Central London. The Grade II listed building had for the last century been used as offices by a solicitors' practice and Burrell Foley Fischer secured Planning Permission and Listed Building Consent for the scheme as part of their architectural services from inception to completion. The house, over five 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 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 1.1 metres below the line of the front ridge so that it is not visible from the street in a sensitive area of London. It provides the family with a private oasis of tranquility amidst the bustling city.
