Our brief with this beautiful Grade II listed house nestled in middle of a conservation area in Notting Hill was to update the space for the needs of a modern, growing family. To achieve this we presented to our clients a plan which opens up the heart of this home, allows the spaces both inside and out to speak fluidly to each other and creates a home which will adapt the the changing needs of a young family. We designed a glass encased staircase wrapped around a new double-heighted interior space connecting the lower and ground floors. The new extension includes beamless folding doors, a glass ceiling to maximize natural light and creates a new first floor Terrance above, the interiors were almost completely gutted to totally remodel bedrooms, bathrooms and a study. Opening up the kitchen and dining area was a must as was a relaxed family area where the children can play within eye shot as well as an elegant spacious living and entertaining area. The result is an integral utterly liveable home marked by clean modern finishes with a noble backdrop of the classic W11 Georgian townhouse.
