Knightsbridge / South Kensington, London

A complete refurbishment and full interior redesign of this duplex flat in London’s Knightsbridge / South Kensington.  Our client briefed us to create a timeless feel to the property in keeping with this part of London, but within a home which would make use of the latest home technology in a discreet way.  Traditional materials are combined with centralised AV and the latest in smart home and lighting technology.

In the main reception rooms and bedrooms we installed beautiful oak parquet flooring throughout – an elegant backdrop to all of the interior schemes.  In the drawing room we reinstated a fireplace and designed bespoke cabinetry for display and storage.  Subtle period references are included in the cloakroom, with traditional panelling and cabinetry as well as a Victorian tiled floor.

The interiors of the kitchens and bathrooms were designed with a more contemporary look.  The German kitchen with white stone worktops has a sleek feel, while incorporating craft elements in the cement tiled splashback, with custom tile patterns combined in a random arrangement.

The master bathroom uses a striking combination of traditional and modern materials: Carrara marble and Murano glass tiles are used with a bespoke-designed Corian basin unit.  This luxury bathroom includes a walk-in shower and whirlpool bath in an ingenious arrangement.  In the second bathroom a stunning custom-blended mosaic tile forms the backdrop to the room and continues across the floor.
