Stage: Developed Design Stage
This apartment in Holland Park is largely outdated. We were brought in by our clients to modernise the space by internally reconfiguring the layout and making extensive updates to the windows & doors, lighting and heating systems as well as interior fixtures and finishes.
The brief we received was fairly straightforward: create a spacious modern feeling apartment which will stand the test of time
During the initial concept design stage, we discussed with our clients the possibilities and limitations of what we could do with their apartment. Being situated within a 1960s block, we were conscious of the external visual amenity of the building. This meant that all of our proposed internal updates were designed in such a way that it wouldn't affect the openings of any fenestration openings. The final layout comprises of a spacious 2 bedroom apartment, with a study/guest bedroom and large open plan living kitchen area.
During the planning stage, we submitted an application to update the fenestration at the rear of the ground floor, reconfigure wall positions, add aluminium framed glazing to rear facing ground floor flat, and add five sets of French doors with electronic opening fanlights above.
We gained planning for the property and are currently working on developing the design drawings, as well as creating the structural engineering package. Once this has been completed a party wall survey will need to be carried out.
