Robert London Design as Architects

What was the brief?
The brief was for a full redesign of a three-story detached Victorian property in Chiswick, west London, including a complete remodel of the interior, and a new ground floor extension.

What were the key challenges?
Key challenges included keeping a balance between the open plan ground floor and the existing nature of closed rooms synonymous with a Victorian property. Other challenges encountered during the space planning included the significant level change from front to back of the property.

Although it was our intention to retain the original coving in the ground floor front rooms, the reconfigured plumbing needed for the first floor family bathroom meant we had to adjust the ground floor ceilings and sadly lose the coving. This type of compromise is a normal part of balancing practical requirements with aesthetic priorities when renovating a period property.

What materials did you choose and why?
In keeping with our preference for natural, hardwearing materials that improve with age and use, Jura Beige limestone and solid ash Dinesen flooring are applied throughout, complementing the calm architectural colour palette and creating consistency and visual harmony across the project. Walnut and oak were used for the furniture and accents, while a rich dark bronze was used for the ironmongery.
