Hampstead Heath House

The practise took on the opportunity to refurbish a substantial Victorian house on the edge Hampstead Heath. The property dates back to 1884 and had been subdivided into 3 separate apartments arranged over 5 floors.

Our brief was to convert this long neglected property back into one house, designed for contemporary living. Planning permission was granted for alterations to the interiors and the introduction of patio doors to the newly landscaped garden. The room layout was reconfigurred on most floors to accommodate new bathrooms and bedrooms. The attic was also converted into a flexible space for future use.

We also designed a number of bespoke furniture pieces such a library with home cinema system and built-in wardrobes. In the “bespoke” section of the website we are showing 3 pieces of furniture which were designed 3 years after the renovation for the study in the house.

The work started on site in spring 2009 and was completed by November that year. We have played an on-site role throughout giving the client a daily update on the progress of the building work. Our contractors delivered a great result and we established a good working relation which we have maintained to date.
