On site in 2020 – Part 2

By June 18, 2020 Events and News

Just before lock-down started, we shared behind the scenes photos from some of the projects we had live on site. Work on sites has continued through lock-down but inevitably progress significantly slowed down on most jobs due to supplier closures and the need to adopt different working practices on site. We are delighted that most of these projects are now finished (and in the ‘snagging’ phase), and the others are progressing well.

We’ll be sharing gorgeous finished photos soon, but for now here’s another look behind the scenes:

St John’s Wood Mansion Block

A new layout and gorgeous new finishes, clever joinery and stylish lighting has transformed this bright but compact flat:

In progress renovation with parquet floor and grey walls
The new double-glazed windows improve heat & sound management (and look great)
In progress renovation showing bespoke wardrobe and parquet floor, with brass details
Brass details throughout include wall lights, cabinet handles and floor trim
boxes piled on parquet floor in front of dark green and grey kitchen
Behind the boxes you can see a hint of the sleek kitchen and beautiful tiled backsplash…

Wapping Riverside Flat

A high end refurbishment of a listed wharf building on the Thames, including installation of secondary glazing, bespoke joinery throughout and remedying the damp problems that unfortunately can come hand in hand with the stunning riverside location!

Staircase with new carpeting, leading up to landing with joinery with integrated lighting
Freshly carpeted stairs, joinery with integrated lighting and a beautiful new banister
Wooden joinery in a bedroom with patterned wood grain, and sockets
Clever joinery makes use of every (not right-angled) corner. We love this woodgrain.

A fluted glass internal window increases light throughout.

Camden Townhouse

A multi-stage project, this family home is being thoroughly renovated with work including structural repairs, improved plumbing and drainage and installation of air conditioning. Room-by-room redecoration is now well underway;

Two Flats in a Bauhaus Building

This listed Bauhaus hospital building was converted in the late 90’s into generously sized but awkwardly laid out flats. This renovation includes moving the boundary wall between two of these flats and re-opening old doorways to improve the use of space. The result is two stunning flats with beautiful finishing touches and attention to detail throughout:

Olive green velvet curtains and cream sheer curtains cover a large window, next to a parquet wooden floor
Sumptuous velvet & sheer curtains and the lovely wooden parquet floor
Bathroom with black and white tiles and brass fittings
The brushed brass fittings work beautifully with the monochrome tiles in this ensuite…
bathroom with pink tiles and brushed brass fittings
… and in this pink one!

Islington Canal Flat

A thorough redecoration inside & out of a rental property, including a new roof, exterior repairs and redecoration, kitchen and bathrooms.
