A before and after of a refurbished townhouse in London

Posted on Thu, 6 Sep 2018 by KiM

We have featured several projects of London-based architecture and design firm  (here, here, here and here) and they recently sent over photos of one of their recent refurbishment projects. With before and after photos! It is a 3 story Victorian townhouse in Highgate and here are some details: Our clients wanted to create a warm, comfortable home with modern touches. Although the house was in reasonable condition, the joinery and fittings throughout the house were dated, had been well used and looked tired. Many of the period features had been stripped out and those that remained had not been maximised. The house lacked character and personality although it benefited from ‘good bones’, nicely proportioned rooms, a delightful garden and a handsome exterior. The brief was to create a warm, comfortable and welcoming home referencing and emphasising the house’s Victorian past as well as adding more contemporary elements to the scheme. I looooove the result. The attention to detail while maintaining the original character of the home is everything.

I love the bathtub. It is my dream tub! Beautiful reno and still very British!
