This elegant detached Victorian house is located in The Kew Gardens Conservation Area, close to The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew a UNESCO World Heritage site. Consequently there are strict planning restrictions relating to period properties and so a sensitive design approach was required. An old Victorian style conservatory was replaced with a new structure to create a contemporary look and maximise both natural light and views and also restore the legibility of the original house. We successfully negotiated with the planners and secured planning approval for a large contemporary and predominantly glazed building which complements the existing Victorian house. We provided a full architectural service for the project from initial design through to administering the building contract. We also designed a bespoke kitchen clad with Statuary marble, new herringbone oak flooring and bespoke living room joinery.
