As a historically listed building, the renovation of this 1820’s home had to be undertaken with care and consideration. The prevailing aesthetic of the redesigned interior is sleek and modern, creating a contrasting juxtaposition with the original ornate Victorian details and exterior facade. The majority of the works were carried out on the first, ground, and lower ground floors, where an entirely new sub-basement was dug out. Off the first floor a large roof deck was established, and a new orangery constructed to connect the new outdoor space with the existing formal living room. The spaces on the ground and lower ground floors were re-worked for a smoother and more logical flow through the rooms, the focal points being the new kitchen/dining room and media room.
