This highly unusual charming private Mews enclave in Putney, very near the River Thames, was previously converted from a Warehouse and Factory. This was the starting point for the complete re-design of this property, which had been sub-divided and converted in the 1980’s. The Mews townhouse was extended into the roof, in order to create additional bedrooms and family spaces. This involved complex and somewhat protracted Planning negotiations with the Local Authority, due to the close proximity of a school, to the rear of the Mews enclave.
Much of the house was renovated and opened up to create much larger, more airy rooms and family spaces. The brief included full re-servicing of the property, significant roof alterations, bespoke joinery and high quality finishes throughout.
Care was taken to maximise natural light distribution and many architectural features such as the original factory ceiling and rafters, were retained and enhanced. Arranged on three levels, the key goal of the design Team was to extend the property to create a family home suitable for the long term. A much better flow to the house was achieved with the redesign of the main spine staircase and the careful creation of more generous spaces.
