Chelsea Embankment, SW3

Rear extension and major refurbishment to join two apartments in a Grade II listed building in the Royal Hospital Conservation Area.

The Queen Anne revival style building was designed by the Scottish architect Richard Norman Shaw around 1878-79.
The proposals create a 3 level maisonette apartment. This requires integrating part of the communal stair within the new accommodation and creating a new stair connecting the top floor, flooded with light by a new roof lantern.  The modern interior is stripped back to its structure and restored with plaster and timber work original to its time, but adapted to respond to the contemporary lifestyle of the client. The entrance foyer showcases a pantry that leads out to a new extension, providing a dining room with stunning views over London.

Client: Private / Collaboration with Italian interior designer Gianpiero Panepinto
