Spotlight on Interiors

Mayfair Apartment, Upper Grosvenor Street

We recently completed the extensive refurbishment and fitting out of a penthouse flat located within a Mayfair Art-Deco mansion block. We were also commissioned with the interior fit-out design for this project, including the design of bespoke joinery, kitchen, bathrooms, door and cornice designs. Finishes and fittings were carefully selected to create a coherent and calm style throughout, fulfilling the client's desire for a contemporary interpretation of the Art-Deco style of the original mansion block. The work included the complete demolition and stripping out of the internal partitions and fabric and the reconstruction of the interior to a new layout. Our design required carefully working with the constraints of existing services and structural elements within the flat to provide two double bedrooms, an en-suite bathroom, shower room, kitchen and a generously proportioned reception and dining room.


The extensive mechanical, electrical and audio-visual installations are carefully integrated within our design in a discrete and sensitive way by, for example, incorporating these services within the joinery design. This included existing communal services running through the flat that were discovered during the demolition and strip out phases.


Our design for the fit-out and selection of finishes was in response to our client's desire for a contemporary interpretation of an Art-Deco style that complements the original mansion block building, including the common parts from which the flat is accessed. The interior design work that we carried out included the design of purpose made joinery, kitchen, bathrooms, doors, and the selection of finishes and floor patterns, blinds and fabrics with the clients to ensure a coherent and calm style throughout. Our services included outline design, application to the Grosvenor Estates for Landlord approvals, detail design, interior design, tender action and administration of the building contract through to completion of the works.


Office Refurbishment Project, King's College London

We were appointed by Quinn London Limited in February 2019 to prepare detailed production information for the refurbishment of the 8th floor offices of Melbourne House, part of the King's College London campus. The project involved the partial strip out of the existing office layout and the installation of a new arrangement of offices, meeting rooms and ancillary areas to house the Principal and Vice Principals of King's College.


Our services included detailed design, specification and scheduling of glazed and sliding partitions, doors, fixtures and finishes, and the careful coordination of mechanical and electrical services and specialist elements such as fire safety and IT installations.

Hampstead Apartments

Haines Phillips refurbishment and fit-out of two apartments in a prestigious mansion block in Hampstead, northwest London for a private developer was completed in 2016. The project included extensive re-planning of the internal layouts and complete detailing of the interiors to achieve luxurious flats on a limited budget. The works also included enhancements to the external fabric and communal parts.


The details and finishes selected for each flat are similar but subtly different. The first floor flat retained some of the original period details of the property, which were incorporated in our design and used as reference points for the detailing of the fit-out.


The upper ground floor flat did not retain any of its period details. In this apartment therefore we proposed a subtle contemporary design that was appropriate to the grand proportions of the building shell. In both apartments Haines Phillips were responsible for the design of all elements, including bathrooms, joinery, lighting, finishes and colour schemes. We also acted as contract administrators and provided cost control services to ensure the project stayed on budget.
