Sometimes it happens that clients need our help when their projects don’t work out. In the Old Brompton Road area of Kensington & Chelsea we were asked to help finish the conversion of a studio into a 2-bed micro flat. The previous builders were not up to the task and left the building works in a dangerous way.
Producing a set of new designs we went through the process of regularising the works with Building Control and consulted with engineers in order to produce technical information for the new builder to work from.
Our ambition was to create a micro loft style of living, centred around the existing wonderfully large windows facing onto Old Brompton Road, and the only way we could do this was to create space.
Our aim was to get the natural light to flow deep into the apartment, and so we specified the largest pocket doors available to allow this to happen. These doors allow the individual spaces to be easily configured to suite family life, while seemingly disappearing when not in use. This combination of light and open, flowing space creates the micro loft effect.
Part of our role was to obtain a licence to alter from the Landlord, and with this our responsibility to ensure the works were carried out to the highest standard, while taking care that the other residents of this 6-storey Victorian apartment block were being cared for.
We designed bespoke joinery key to allowing every inch of space to be maximised. Bedrooms featured sliding storage, and furniture and fixtures were specified as part of our interior design package, keeping space generous and un-cluttered.
