One of the brilliant trends that you will find in some of the older public buildings in London is to juxtapose original and period features alongside more modern renovations. Modern renovations look stunning in period settings and this is a trend that is visible in many of the museums and galleries in London and around the world.
These renovations are often the work of esteemed architects, but the trend is also evident in less ambitious projects that take place on a domestic level. It is possible, for instance, to have your period home in London renovated so that it benefits from some stunning modern features as well as its beautiful period features.
If your period property is in need of some attention, then it is well worth looking at incorporating a more contemporary twist into any renovation work you were planning on having carried out. When it comes to architects, London is home to far more than the famous names associated with the renovations of galleries and museums. London, especially Chelsea, Kensington and Mayfair have plenty more talent with domestic agendas that you can make use of personally.
