The three storey terraced mews house was formerly used as an office building before our client Mike Penn bought it in 2012. Mike, a well-known fashion and horse photographer, asked TG Studio to transform the building into a home and office Now the accommodation comprises ground floor office space, cloakroom WC and a guest bedroom with en-suite; first floor, a large full width entertaining space featuring kitchen, dining and living area; second floor a large master bedroom with en-suite and walk in wardrobe..
The house was stripped down to its structural walls and roof, and reinstated as a new modern home. All of the external walls and roof were insulated and all windows and doors replaced.
New York retro meets luxurious Fitzrovia in the master bathroom.. TG-Studio have selected traditional bevelled white tiles and mixed them with a lavish arabascato marble, matt black lacquer and grey basalt stone alongside an exposed brick wall. The bathroom fittings are a traditional English design complimenting the freestanding bath
The client wanted a large walk-in wardrobe and spacious bedroom which was achieved on the second floor. The master bedroom features a bespoke bed made for the client by TG-Studio.
In the first floor living room the oak floorboards continue up the end wall and finish at a lighting feature which adds to the illusion of height. Two of the windows were replaced by French doors. A window casing out of solid oak was fitted to emphasise the new thickness and solidity of the external walls. The TV unit is a TG-Studio bespokedesign made for the client.
Clever layout design under the sloping roof allowed for the building of a 5 metre long walk-in wardrobe and shelving. The clever use of mirror emphasises the sleek design.
The client wanted the first floor to be as open-plan as possible, and the living area goes through to dining and then to the kitchen (by Doca) which has a joinery feel and features a new matt tactile gum finish. The worktop is sandblasted granite and the splash back is TG Studio’s signature arabascato marble. Exposed brickwork is a feature along the window wall.
