"We recently completed a full design refurbishment coupled with project management in Fitzrovia, London. This two-bedroom apartment had not been touched since 1982 and needed a full makeover with new electrics, plumbing, flooring and the removal of walls. Our clients wanted a classic contemporary home, providing a peaceful retreat from busy central London.

We took out an unnecessary cloakroom to give the main en-suite bathroom a larger footprint and included a walk-in shower. All aspects of this central London home were stripped right back to the subfloor, with new design details, materials, finishes and FF&E instated. We instated glass steel framed doors into the reception room to bring some much-needed light into the space and the final outcome is testimony to a complete team effort. We were fortunate to work with an amazing contractor, joinery team and some wonderful artisan manufacturers and finishers to create the client's dream space."
