This grade II listed house in West London was designed for a client with an impressive modern art collection and an interest in mid-century furniture, especially pieces by South American designers. The property itself, previously formed from two adjoining town houses required complete restoration, having undergone successive decades of alteration resulting in the almost complete loss of all internal architectural detailing. The process required the reinstatement of fibrous plaster work, doors, fireplaces, floors and a cantilevered Portland stone stair.

New joinery was designed with a deliberately contemporary aesthetic; a strategic approach enabling a clear reading of both the building’s history and its 21st century use.
