A pied-a-terre for an overseas family to enjoy

A pied-a-terre in central London, serving an oversees client. It required a basic update, requested at low/medium cost, not executed were kitchen and walls

The focus was on a few basic elements which would give the space a fresh feel without the need of a total refurbishment. Underfloor heating and new wooden floors were installed in all rooms, the two bathrooms and utility room were totally stripped and rebuilt, their condition was poor, all to an economic budget but providing high quality workmanship.

The furniture brief: make it simple, with an easy flow and to visually be a good match to the artwork provided by client. Only available stock furniture at the time could be ordered, no manufacturing orders could be placed. The time frame to be finished swiftly, was paramount.

We tried to give this lower ground floor flat a fresh, timeless feel and hope it will be enjoyed by the family for many years to come.
