This 5 bedroom house, located in Kensington, was newly constructed behind the original façade. The property was built around a steel frame, which provided lateral open space. Cundall designed all the services included for a high-end developer.
The redevelopment of the property included the creation of a basement beneath the entire building footprint and a vertical extension, adding a new mansard storey. All of the internal walls were removed and replaced with a steel frame, providing clear floor plates and maximising the flexibility of the space.
This property is set over 5 floors and offers all the latest design and technology. Each floor delivers unique layouts that are unrestricted by the levels above and below. The floors are linked via a unique staircase finished with a glass room at its top, allowing natural light to cascade throughout the property. The house includes a media room, a balcony and 5 bedrooms. All principal rooms were fully comfort cooled and under floor heating was designed and installed in the reception rooms and bathrooms. Other services include showers with body jets, scene set lighting control and gas fires.
