A charming Kensington Mews which lies to the north of Chelsea and south of Notting Hill. The area has been favoured by the British monarchy since the 17th century when William III built Kensington Palace to escape the smoke and dirt of central London. Today the area retains a huge share of London’s green space, with Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park only a few minutes’ walk away.
Research into the history of the mews lead the design for the re-modelled layouts and interiors for this characterful dwelling. A suite of options were prepared for the client to explore different approaches to renovating and extending the living accommodation.
Wignall & Moore worked closely with the client to propose design concepts faithful to the character of the mews. These overcame the technical challenges inherent with the original building and provided a greatly improved quality of space. A final concept was successfully progressed through the planning process.
