Hogarth Architects have remodelled the interior of a listed apartment on Queen’s Gate Terrace in South Kensington, London.
Retaining the historic fire surround and cornice but removing later
partitions and a false ceiling, the architects inserted a two-level
timber structure containing the kitchen, bathroom, a mezzanine and
“The space is located on the first floor of a listed building,”
explains project architect Hamish Herford. “The fire surround and
cornice, by law, had to remain.”
Herford adds: “The existing space was divided into three rooms with
a false ceiling while the new design aims to restore the space back to
its original proportions, which would have been as one room.”
“The new structure was designed as a large piece of furniture to provide all the functions required by a man about town.”
Photographs are by James Brittain.
“The picture of the small room [above] with a fold down bed is
located on another floor but is part of the same project,” says Herford.
