The redevelopment of the top two floors of a grade II listed Regency townhouse, in collaboration with Ramses Frederickx.

Despite the excellent central London location, the building had been poorly extended in the 80s creating a large space on the top floor with a low ceiling height and poor natural light – a real missed opportunity. Despite strict planning rules, permission was secured to lift a section of the roof and to replace the 16 small domes of the original roof with 3 much more substantial roof lights. The existing clunky columns which supported the roof were also replaced with two slender cruciforms to create a much more refined architecture.

An open-air terrace was cut out of the space, hidden behind the front elevation of the building, with corner opening sliding doors providing direct access from the living space. A new staircase with a glass balustrade and opening rooflight provides access to the roof with views over central London.

The kitchen uses Spanish encaustic tiles in a random pattern.

Wainscoting was added to the entrance hall which, together with new doors and joinery, reinstates some of the grandeur of the existing building which has been lost over the years.

The existing staircase to the top floor was re-clad with Oak which is set against the original cast iron spindles of the lower floor.

Access to the 5th floor required a scaffold and a crane to lift the large rooflights.

Price and Myers sketch with a proposal for the head detail of the new cruciform columns. The columns were inserted under the existing roof structure which required some careful detailing.
