Mayfair Apartment, Upper Brook Street

City of Westminster, London W1

Extensive refurbishment and fitting out work on this two bedroom flat located within an Art-Deco mansion block in Mayfair was completed in the early autumn of 2016.

The work consisted of the complete demolition and stripping out of the internal partitions and fabric and the reconstruction of the interior to a new layout, providing two double bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms and a generously proportioned reception and dining room.

The overall design makes skillful use of the tight floor plan and carves out generous and coherent spaces, integrating the extensive mechanical, electrical and audio-visual installations in a discrete and sensitive way, by, for example, incorporating these services within the joinery design.

Our design for the fit-out and selection of finishes was in response to our client’s desire for continuing the original Art-Deco style and features that permeate the common parts from which the flat is accessed, but in an updated fashion more suited to our client’s lifestyle.

We undertook the design of purpose made cornices, skirting boards and door surrounds to ensure a coherent and calm style throughout. This is in addition to the design of the purpose made joinery, bathroom vanity units, mirrors, door handles, and the like.

The interior design work was also carried out by us and included the conceptual lighting design, design of the bathrooms, selection of finishes and floor patterns, selection of paints, and specification of electric blinds and fabrics.

Our services included outline design, a planning application to Westminster City Council and an 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. Project management as the Lead Consultant.
