A two bedroom flat situated in a grade II listed building in a beautiful tree lined street in London. This project was for an existing client, who we previously worked with on their country homes in Gloucestershire and in France. The flat had an unusual layout and was stripped of all architectual details by the previous owner. The brief was to create a traditional design suitable to the period of the building with a 'gentleman's club' feel using the clients extensive collection of art, antique furniture, rugs and furnishings. Working with a London based firm of architects, the flat was extensively renovated with new wood flooring, skirtings, cornices, architraves, oak doors, panelling, new joinery, chimney breasts and fireplaces. A study, a new kitchen, two bathrooms and a dressing room were added. The flat now comprises of an entrance Hall, drawing room, study, kitchen, dining room, two bedrooms, a dressing room and two bathrooms.
