This charming listed 19th Century terraced house, set in the heart of Belgravia on the Grosvenor Estate, was extensively restored and renovated with the close involvement of the City of Westminster’s Conservation Team. The proposals included full re-servicing of the property, significant layout alterations, the excavating beneath the under pavement coal vaults to the front and a general refurbishment. Great care was taken to retain all of the listed architectural features and to repair and enhance where elements were these were missing.
The Client had requested the installation of full comfort cooling to the property and this was also achieved after a very rigorous Planning and Conservation negotiation. The siting of the cooling heat rejection plant was one of the trickiest of the technical problems which the Design Team had to solve, as the plant could only be located in the front cellar.
The interior design and decoration of the house were undertaken seamlessly with the architectural design and the close co-operation of the Client and his advisers ensured an excellent final result.
