Mews House Refurbishment | Architects for Camden | Belsize Park, North West London
forresterarchitects have provided a design feasibility study for the house refurbishment of a duplex apartment in Primrose Hill. The duplex flat is part of a modern purpose-built development in the fashionable area in North London. As a bachelor, the client was able to indulge his needs with specific requirements to keep the place tidy. The flat layout was simple. The design employs bespoke storage solutions to create living wall solutions to maximise on space. Sliding doors avoid taking up valuable space but also allow for an open plan feel when left in the open.
A large Victorian house in Stoke Newington, North London has not been refurbished since its purchase by the clients, ten years previous. During this period the house suffered from student occupation and was tired. The upper floors were bowed and only one bathroom served a four bedroom house. A full house refurbishment was proposed with the requirement of a full-width rear extension. A low engineered basement was added to the existing home as a viable solution to the client’s storage and utility requirements. A projecting window seat was a key feature to the rear extension design proposal. A fully glazed roof-light provided a bright modern kitchen overlooking a modest garden. A guest shower-room to the top floor landing provided a simple design solution without compromising the top bedrooms. A muted palette provided the most suitable background for the client’s extensive art collection.
forresterarchitects have designed a cool minimalist interior loft conversion which has just been published in the definitive guide to stylish living, House & Garden. It’s not your typical dormer solution. An extra floor was added to a Victorian mid-terraced house but an inspired client required ‘their’ space to be defined at the top of the house. Leaving the chaos of the school day behind. The loft provides panoramic views of the city. The roof topped only by a large glass oval roof-light overhead which slides open to reveal a sparkling moonlit sky.

forresterarchitects have completed the reconfiguration of a mansion block refurbishment within the Bloomsbury Conservation Area. The flat is large and wide with a communal lightwell providing daylight to the bedrooms. The light levels to the flat even with a south facing aspect were inadequate. The reconfiguration involved making the flat feel more open plan with large sliding doors introduced to the living and kitchen rooms. This allows the south-facing light to flood across the depth of the flat. The bathrooms are modernised with fine joinery wardrobes provided to compliment the bedrooms. A new kitchen layout involved the incorporation of the walk-in larder which increased the overall area of the kitchen for the better.
