The end of terrace property in the heart of London’s Chelsea Design Quarter was completely reconfigured from its traditional layout to make it conducive to modern living. The client sought a family home with a seamless blend of contemporary luxury and timeless elegance. Entertaining large groups of friends and family in an open plan kitchen and living space was paramount to the brief. Concealed behind the front façade, which was all that was retained of the original building, is a modern, open plan interior that balances luxury with practically. The ground floor reception overlooks the dining area below allowing both spaces to bathe in natural light from the double height windows and doors. The combination of the warm grey colour palette with the bold charcoal accents of the windows, doors and railings give the house a contemporary edge.
