This great property is the lower ground flat in a late Victorian mansion block in Paddington. The clients wanted a fresh, more luxurious feel for their one bedroom flat. The flat needed rewiring, so we took the opportunity to rethink lighting throughout. It had problems with damp in several places – we used specialist dampproofers and negotiated with the freeholder to pay for most of this. We got rid of the dated radiators and fitted heating/ cooling aircon throughout – a great bonus in the city in summer! (This required Planning Permission and Listed Building consent, for which specialist sound analysis/ sound absorption design was required). We fitted new flooring, reinstated original ceiling mouldings and skirtings, re-plastered and decorated and designed bespoke joinery (wardrobes, cupboards and desks/ shelving) throughout to make the best use of every cm of space. We freshened up the kitchen with new tiles and integrated appliances – thereby saving the client the cost of a new kitchen. This beautiful calming flat is a great escape from the city.
This awkward space was reconfigured by lowering the floor and fitting bespoke shelves and a desk next to the window, ensuring natural light which is shown to increase productivity and feelings of happiness.
To provide more storage space and sense of light and space we fitted these bespoke units and fitted mirrors on the doors.
In London it is great to get around by bike however few have secure, tidy storage for their wheels.
we fitted this handy bike shelf in the long space, making a feature of the bike and providing a nifty space to store bike tools, helmet etc.
This great little kitchen provides ample storage with a pale wood finish to maximise light and space.
We made sure every aspect of the project was up to scratch and all work was carried out meticulously by one of our usual trusted contractors.
This is a lovely one bedroom LG property of a Victorian mansion block in Paddington. The clients wanted a fresh more luxurious feel to the flat.
The clients love the natural light in here and wooden desk. Biophilic design played a key role in this design and it has worked as the clients say they use it daily.
We ordered this great retro styled fridge and made sure it had pride of place in the living/ kitchen area.
