Working with a very creative client on this property allowed for in-depth conceptual schemes and styles to be discussed from the very start of the concept generation stage. The brief was to open up the rear ground floor of the property and let in an abundance of natural light into the heart of the home. A fully glazed side infill extension was designed in conjunction with a feature extension to the rear of the custom kitchen. This allowed the flow of the ground floor to work in a more streamlined way. There was a key focus on materials, colours, and textures within this project, both internally and externally. The bespoke profile cedar cladding is one-of-a-kind and adds a contemporary but aging finish which was desired by the client due to the natural character of the Western Red Cedar. The bespoke interiors consist of a 1980s inspired yellow and pastel palette, set alongside the bespoke plywood Hamilton King kitchen, continuing throughout the property to all three floors, including the extended first floor, newly added study, and second-floor guest suite loft conversion encompassing views over West London.

"Hamilton King were really easy to work with and they put in a huge amount of both effort and care in designing a modern bespoke kitchen that would work sympathetically in the context of a very unique Grade 2 Listed urban property. The finish is of a high quality and the overall look is fantastic. Jon was always on hand to help with final adjustments and to answer any queries during the project, it's a personal and professional service and a lovely product."
-Philippa Grantha RIBA, associate architect at Studio Klascka architecture & design.
"We are delighted with the finished results of both our bespoke kitchen and complete refurbishment of our Grade II listed home. The design was elegant yet thoroughly functional for everyday living. Throughout the process, Jon was very diplomatic, keen and competent, easy to get on with and work with. He knew when to get more involved and when to hand over decisions to us. He is a perfectionist, so was able to work with our ideas to achieve exactly what we wanted. Calm but assertive when required regarding deadlines, attention to detail and costings. He was also very accommodating with his time and always willing to fit meetings in around our busy days."

"We purchased our house as it presented the canvas and living space that we wanted. Before moving forward, we realised the value a good architect would bring to turn our ideas into a vision. After a couple of meetings with Hamilton King, it became clear that they could enhance and help us achieve our dream home. We instructed Hamilton King in January 2013 to generate design concepts, draw up architectural plans to renovate and upgrade our entire property including a loft conversion. Hamilton King understood, listened and were able to design and enhance our ideas into clear plans. They worked to a clear timescale and set budget that we were happy with. We now have a home that is exactly as we wanted."
