Mansion Block Refurbishment | Architects for Camden | Bloomsbury Conservation Area, West Central London
forresterarchitects recently completed the refurbishment of a mansion block in the Bloomsbury Conservation Area, West Central London. The flat was spacious and had a south-facing aspect, but its communal lightwell provided inadequate light levels to the interior. To address this issue, forresterarchitects introduced large sliding doors to the living and kitchen rooms, creating a more open-plan layout and allowing natural light to flood across the depth of the flat.
The reconfiguration also involved modernising the bathrooms and providing fine joinery wardrobes that complemented the bedrooms. The new kitchen layout included the incorporation of a walk-in larder, increasing the overall area of the kitchen. These changes not only resolved the light issue but also enhanced the functionality and aesthetics of the flat. As the flat is located in the Bloomsbury Conservation Area, it was crucial to ensure that the refurbishment was in keeping with the area’s historic architecture. forresterarchitects carefully selected materials and finishes that complemented the existing features of the building. The result is a modern and elegant living space that respects the historic context of the surrounding area.
The success of this project is a testament to forresterarchitects expertise in designing sympathetic and practical solutions for refurbishments in historic areas. Their attention to detail and sensitivity to the existing architecture have resulted in a beautiful and functional space that meets the needs of the client while respecting the historic context of the area.
