Refurbishment and Basement Extension North Kensington North Kensington
Prime residential refurbishment of a large property in North Kensington, transforming it into a luxury home for a private client, with an extension and complete remodelling with specialist interior design.
Ridge worked with the overseas-based private client and interior designers and architects to develop the vision. Our work helped to transform a large house into a new luxury UK home, within a defined budget and programme.
The evolution of the design required careful change management and budget control to ensure that the vision could be achieved at the right costs, whilst not constraining the client’s requirements.
The scheme comprised a double-height basement extension, a cinema room, extended double-height living and dining space overlooking the garden, guest suite, laundry and M&E plant space.
New Balthaup kitchens and luxury Lefroy Brooks bathrooms and en-suites were installed throughout, along with bespoke joinery to provide ‘his and hers’ dressing rooms and clothes storage.
The furnishing was a combination of existing, bespoke and carefully selected high-specification items, aligned and coordinated with the interior design concepts, fabrics, materials and feature lighting.
The existing features of the house were enhanced and highlighted where appropriate to bring out the character of the property and comply with planning and conservation requirements.
