This project involved the remodelling and extension of a quirky house in the St John’s Wood Conservation Area which had previously been the home of a renowned artist. The clients wanted a fun and contemporary space whilst retaining some of characteristics of the original property, formerly part of a chapel. Arched doorways, Crittall doors and a kitchen extension were included to create a more spacious home for the young family. A diverse specification of materials coupled with an imaginative use of colour achieved a sophisticated, timeless and fun space for the family to grow into.
One particular challenge involved the large gothic windows in the master bedroom, a legacy of the old chapel, which encroached into the floor above. To achieve separation between the two floors whilst respecting the historic building fabric, the windows were remade in their original design and reinstalled at a more suitable level.Rosie
