Situated in the heart of Westminster within the Birdcage Walk Conservation Area, this beautiful property has uninterrupted views over the Royal Park of St James’s and benefits from its own private garden as well as beautifully crafted bespoke interiors.
With high ceilings on the lower floors, the property boasts intact period features seamlessly integrated with contemporary spaces and materials.
A project designed with a tangible connection between conservation and innovation, the building’s character has been preserved and indeed enhanced by a carefully considered injection of drama.
A walk through the building is a journey around sleek details and key elements. The womb-like reception with bespoke cantilevered furniture and feature crystal chandelier draws the visitor into an unexpected place. This leads to a series of meeting places, each with a unique character ranging from the informal garden room to the stunning meeting room in the central bay.
The grand staircase, with a suitably bold finish, is the heartbeat of the ground floor and leads to an impressive office suite on the first floor. Consisting of an interconnected library and study with full height book cases and spectacular views over St James’s Park, the office suite exudes elegance and results in a distinctive workspace.
Infusing a sense of glamour into the existing building, the design complements the existing architecture using subtle interventions and impressive bespoke furniture to create unique spaces to meet the client’s aspirations; a corporate building with a residential feel, “An office that does not feel like an office”.
This project becomes an experience to visitors and staff alike. This is a great example of a well balanced and current project in the luxury design industry and has been recently shortlisted for the AJ Retrofit Awards in the ‘Offices under 2000m²’ category.
