Complete renovation of a large apartment in a mansion block, Victoria, SW1See more projects
Huntsmore project managed the design and build of this full renovation project in a red brick mansion block in Victoria.
The property was a very large lateral apartment in a purpose-built Art Nouveau red brick mansion block, totally approximately 2800 Sq Ft.
Ahead of starting construction works, a License to Alter agreement from the building’s Management Company was required. Huntsmore compiled a detailed design pack for the Management Company, outlining all the proposed changes, including the new kitchen layout and converting an old utility room into a shower room.
The building works included the install of a fully bespoke hand-made kitchen. This was designed and installed by London kitchen designer ‘Holland St, Kitchens’. The kitchen was reconfigured by Huntsmore ahead of the install.
Three of the bathrooms were fully reconfigured and renovated, with marble and stone tiles used throughout.
Extensive joinery was designed and built by Huntsmore. These featured in all three bedrooms, one of the living rooms, and running alongside the entire length of the hallway to house the family’s extensive book collection.
The property was painted throughout in Little Greene paints.
Huntsmore worked with kitchen designers ‘Holland St, Kitchens’ who created this large fully bespoke shaker kitchen. Space was badly configured, with a slim doorway leading through to the hallway on the other side. It was decided that it would better to close this section off to get more cabinetry and storage space. The original entrance doorway was also altered so that the large pantry unit to the right-hand-side could be fitted. The pantry drawers were made specifically to incorporate the client’s existing casserole dishes and pots and pans. This meant we had to reduce the doorway width and installed sliding pocket door system.
Everything in the kitchen was fully bespoke, designed to the client’s exacting requirements. The cabinets were made of oak with the doors and frames made in poplar wood. The kitchen was finished in Little Greene’s ‘Lead’.
