A light touch refresh to the interior of #RupertSanderson in Mayfair for a summer reopening. Get ready for the boardwalk!
A terrace of riverside townhouse’s are desirable for their perfect location on the banks of the Swan River. The newly purchase townhouse has lost its 1970’s charm. There is great potential to enliven the simple interior with period fixture and fittings and recreate a modern open plan environment. The upper floor bedrooms are reconfigured to provide simple ensuite facilities. The living room, kitchen and dining space are reorientated to form a new focal point for the house, the ever changing Swan River.
The house was in a significant state of disrepair. forresterarchitects secured planning permission for a rear outrigger to the Keystone Conservation Area. To provide a reasonable level of accommodation the reconfiguration of the house will be necessary. A new bedroom was added to the second floor to replace the existing master bathroom. It will be necessary to relocate the sanitary provision of the house elsewhere without compromising the existing floor plan. The new rear outrigger extension will provide accommodation for a new shower room and a new bathroom. The extension will be entered from the existing stairwell and accessed from each half landing.
It’s rare you find a cottage in your garden but my clients have that on purchasing their house in Highgate. That said it has remained under utilised over the years. It is now time for some upgrading and the cottage is to be enlivened to provide stand alone accommodation for the in-laws . When not used by guests it will have a certain amount of flexibility to provide a study area for the client’s daughters and their friends. In the evening it will be used as a party venue following dinner parties or where they can watch a film. The provision of a sliding partition wall will allow the cottage to be subdivided into dedicated areas to provide privacy. The mezzanine will be orientated to run the length of the cottage. It will remain as a visual connection to the ground floor and provide a dedicated study area with extra bedroom space. To assist in the flexibility of space clever joinery will be incorporated to conceal the bed when not in use.
forresterarchitects have submitted a remodelling proposal for a mansion block in a fine Art Deco building in Balham. The existing configuration was fine but many issues were problematic and need to be resolved. A new kitchen layout and reconfigured bathrooms were a priority for the client.
The second penthouse in a prestigious development, located in St. John’s Wood, North West London has been completed by forresterarchitects. The same client, as the previous penthouse refurbishment, has purchased a second apartment as an investment property. It too required a fresh approach to enliven this luxury penthouse apartment which is configured as a duplex apartment. A simple muted palette is adapted to suit the client’s taste. As with the previous refurbishment, an open plan configuration is retained. In ‘Starck’ contrast to the opulence of the previous Rococo interior, a sleek modern approach provides vitality to this desirable apartment.
forresterarchitects have remodelled a third floor flat in a fine Art Deco flat to a fine mansion block in Balham. The existing configuration was fine but some issues were problematic and need to be resolved. A feature wall provides a central focus for the flat. The wall can be circumnavigated to access a new kitchen layout and reconfigured bathrooms which were a priority for the client.
