Holland Park Mews

Our brief was to create a unique contemporary family home that would sit comfortably in the sensitive heritage environment of Holland Park.

We worked closely with both conservation and heritage officials in Kensington and Chelsea due to the sensitive location to agree a delicate insertion to compliment the garden heritage of the site. In essence we focused on the principle of creating a ‘pavilion in a garden’. This resulted in a minimal Steel and glass pavilion concept. The development lent itself to an upside down house model of living with access and views over the garden for first floor living space and bedroom accommodation on the ground floor level with courtyards glazing to maximise daylight. The material palette is intentionally restrained taking the local historic masonry as the base material and adding to it with dark hardwoods and minimally framed glazed elements.
