A high class residential refurbishment
Variety is the spice of life, they say, and lately we’ve been spicing up our days with projects diversifying into areas other than shops and restaurant fit-outs. One of our recent favourites was a residential refurbishment on a gorgeous house just off Sloane Square in central London.
Owned by a dynamic couple with lots of stylish ideas, this three-storey house was stripped back to brickwork and dramatically refurbished in a deeply personal project, which saw numerous changes along the way.
Inspiration from James Bond!
As the owners are a lawyer and author, priority, perhaps, was given to the two studies – one on the first floor and one on the second. Our team of craftspeople manufactured bespoke joinery for both studies, with high burnished finishes, incorporating plenty of cleverly concealed storage and a system of dimmable LED lights. In the gentleman’s study, a particular request for a stealthy ‘James Bond’ style door, gave us leeway to create a smooth, seamless system that slides open soundlessly at the touch of a key fob!
Glass Roofed Bedroom
In the master bedroom an extension was created continuing up the walls of the footprint below, and topped with a conservatory style glass roof, which floods the room with light. We also created bespoke wardrobes, dressing table and vanity units. In one of the guest bedrooms, we added gorgeous handcrafted floor to ceiling retractable New England style shutters to divide the space and make a dedicated dressing/laundry area.
Kitchen and bathrooms didn’t escape our skilled teams. Clever cabinetry makes use of every available space in the kitchen and the new granite worktops gleam above the integrated appliances. In the shower room, frosted shower doors complete a stunning modern look, with a bold koi carp wallpaper demanding attention.
It’s always a privilege to be chosen by our commercial clients – especially when we are asked to come back and do repeat work for clients with numerous outlets; but there’s an extra layer of trust when residential clients hand over their private living space. Creating the rooms and features that make our clients’ hearts’ glad without compromising the quality of the finish is a really satisfying way to make a living!
