Flower Michelin transform Grade II listed duplex apartment into a bright and spacious double height family home in Belgravia, London.
Flower Michelin has recently completed the full refurbishment and alteration of this duplex apartment on thefourth and fifth floors of an historically converted Georgian property in Belgravia, London.
The existing apartment comprised of small rooms with low ceilings, and required full remodelling and refurbishment with a design which dramatically increased the apartment’s sense of scale and space by raising the ceiling into the previously unused eaves of the roof. The building is Grade II Listed and within the Grosvenor Estate, and all works had to adhere to Licence and Conservation design regulations.
The internal floor plan was reconfigured to meet the Client’s brief of three bedrooms and two bathrooms: the existing staircases were reconfigured and top lit from a large opening rooflight; internal walls were removed to form a large open plan living space with a Boffi Kitchen concealed below the lower ceiling section. New rooflights were inserted to create double height vaulted ceilings to the open plan Main Reception area at the rear, and to the Master Bedroom and Ensuite to the front of the building.
A complex structural scheme allowed the eaves to be raised into the roof above to improve the feeling of space. The floor above the loft spaces were opened up to accommodate new built in storage within the two bedrooms as well as the Bathroom and Utility.
A light palette of finishes have been used throughout, including large format marble slabs and polished plaster, contrasting against a dark engineered timber floor, all to maximise the volume, light and create a unique series of spaces.
The project provides a sleek, minimal and contemporary flat which serves both as a family home and space to entertain in.
