We’re Uniting Three Flats into One House with a Huge Secret

Rob wanted to return this Grade II listed terrace house to its former glory by converting it back into one home. The twist was that one of the flats occupied what was once an artist’s studio in the garden. Rob came to us to integrate this charming structure with the rest of the house by turning the link building into a kitchen and running a basement underneath.

We’re Tearing Out Everything but the Walls in This Kensington Mews House

A main concern of planning departments is the appearance of a house from the street. Unless it’s a protected building, they don’t care so much about what happens inside. This house that we started working on in 2016 is an extreme example of that: all that will remain of the original structure will be the exterior walls, while the inside will transform into a bright and open contemporary home with extra space thanks to a brand-new basement floor.

We’re Excavating a Double Storey Basement in St. John’s Wood

Basement builds were an unfortunate controversy in 2016, but planning departments cracking down on subterranean developments didn’t deter us from digging deep for this double basement. When complete, this basement will house an open plan kitchen/dining room, a sauna, gym, a swimming pool and more.

We’re Building a New House (After We Demolished the Old One)

Demolition work is challenging at the best of times. When the house is tightly squeezed between two neighbours, even the most experienced architect will get sweat on their brow. Luckily, this demolition in Barnes was smooth sailing and we’re now well on our way to providing our clients with a brand new 5000 sq ft home complete with a huge basement floor.
