Location of property: Mayfair
Green Street W1K 7FZ
Local planning borough: Westminster. The freeholders are Grosvenor Estates and the property is in a Westminster conservation area. Urbane Design Architects have worked with Grosvenor on many projects and know their requirements.
Project brief: To modernise a dated Georgian central London town house and to fill the house with natural light. The brief was also to maintain the original beautiful architectural features and compliment them with modern bespoke details.
The result: By keeping features of architectural merit from the original Georgian house and sensitively adding very modern details a light and airy beautiful house was created. A glass roof was added so the owners could utilise the roof deck and flood the house with light. The floor to ceiling frameless American oak doors create an incredible wow factor with 3.5 meters door in places. The property had all windows changed from single glazed sash windows to double glazed. It is in a Westminster conservation area and this required planning permission.
