Wellington Court, situated in North London called for a complete refurbishment and internal reconfiguration that sensitively responds to a unique brief, while maintaining a connection to the original 1930’s architecture, creating a contemporary yet timeless design with a spatial arrangement that is open, inviting and drenched in natural sunlight.
The buildings duality is taken advantage of, resulting in an apartment that is totally unrestricted and vast. A significantly enlarged master bedroom that encourages a continuous flow to dressing room and master bathroom see the reinstatement of previously blocked-out windows with the intention of maximising natural directional lighting. Our new master bedroom has been designed to incorporate the client’s piano. The large built-in shelving unit spans across the wall and wraps around the piano, creating different sized compartments for various storage and display needs. Walnut timber has been chosen for the frame, whilst bespoke pink pigmented concrete tiles have been specifically made for the unit. The same terrazzo has been used as a top for the bedside tables.
The living room design has been kept open and minimal while continuing to implement intelligent storage solutions. The existing traditional fireplace has been removed and replaced with a new concrete fireplace surround. Further bespoke built-in joinery has been designed for the dining and kitchen room.
Furthermore, at the client’s request, the secondary bathroom has been remodelled to allow for a walk-in shower that’s primary purpose is to keep the occupants beautiful collection of bicycle frames immaculate. A matching finish and materials palette are transferred across to the further room, that house’s the bikes, and can also facilitate yoga practice. Additionally, built-in joinery is designed to hide a murphy bed and allow for full flexibility in the use of space.
