Renovation in West London
Renovating and refurbishing residential property in London is extremely specialised work. Many London residential properties are extremely old (some early eighteenth century with a huge amount of Georgian and Victorian properties), most of which were almost always constructed using timber joists, members and staircases that have moved significantly with the passing of years. The result is floors generally slope, windows may be parallel to the floor but are not parallel to the ceiling and so on.
It is usual for even the most handsome rooms to have different floor to ceiling heights in each corner, for curtains to be made with gentle gradients along the hems compensating for each property’s peculiarities. Original single glazed windows (which tend to be draughty & noisy) must be individually measured and replaced with modern triple or double glazed windows, manufactured bespoke to an individual property as each property, each room and each window is unique.
Surveying a property of this kind is an exacting task, requiring precise details and measurements to be recorded and later in the process calling for significant skill to produce accurate drawings of new proposed layouts with different options that work with the fabric of the building.
We coordinate specialist structural engineers, familiar with properties of this kind, to advise on what is or is not possible, and the best way to achieve the outcomes desired by a property owner for their renovation. We take a considered view that just about anything is possible, the only limits being your imagination and resources you are prepared to commit to obtain it.
Exquisite Interior Design
Ultimately, the dividing of spaces and creating different living zones is not what gives a property character, elegance and good taste.
These human responses to your home come from the use of finishes and little touches that combine to make an enormous difference such as fine solid-wood flooring, quality marble, a high specification kitchen and bathroom, best-in-class appliances and technology such as sound systems and wine fridges.
You can be completely confident we look after every detail of your property renovation and refurbishment for you, from the very first survey through to those vital and personal finishing touches to create a property that gives you great pleasure for years to come.
