Renovation of Grade II listed building in West London
Redevelopment of an extensive residential property overlooking the Regents canal in Little Venice, West London.
The property consisted of two existing buildings: a Grade II listed house fronting the canal and a pavilion set at the end of a 30 meter long garden.
The main house – containing the private and guest rooms, a study, library, formal reception and dining rooms as well as the playroom and main kitchen – was extensively refurbished and the lower ground floor was lowered by several feet to provide light and spacious rooms opening directly onto a (lowered) rear garden. An underground swimming pool and spa area were created to link the main house to the re-constructed pavilion which now contains guest accommodation, and office, gym, music and store rooms. The pool itself features a vaulted white concrete roof and is naturally lit along its length by means of skylights.
The client’s passion for precise detailing and a complex material palette are evident throughout with meticulously selected marbles, stones, wood and leather used to capitalise on the quality of the carefully planned spaces. Once completed the buildings will be a family home of exceptional quality extending to over 9,000 sqft.
