Duplex Penthouse Trafalgar Square
The major redevelopment and substantial expansion of an existing 790 sqm period property increasing in size to 1440 sqm.
The project commenced in 2010 and involved the major redevelopment and substantial expansion of an existing 790 sqm period property increasing in size to 1440 sqm. The original house posed a number of difficulties and as a result with the exception of the front facade was completely demolished. Working with the architects, Honky was appointed as interior architects and was responsible for the entire internal detailing and finishes specification.
The brief was to create an elegant interior to complement the traditional period features of this refurbished £3.2m property. A muted light colour palette was used with fine ebony wood, antique silver finishes and luxurious tactile fabrics to enhance both the heritage and modernity of the building.
Family had to be at the forefront of the design. The furniture and finishes had to compliment the grand architectural details and yet still feel like a family home. While still being classical, we were careful to ensure the design was family focused.
This is particularly highlighted on the basement floor, where an impressive pool area encompasses a large swimming pool, changing rooms and wellness spa. The pool sits next to a casual sitting room, and extends from the house out to the garden with arched glass doors that create an inside/outside feel to the space. This enables them to move freely between these areas, as a growing family, an entirely idyllic set up.
