This grade II listed Georgian terraced house in St John’s Wood had previously been converted into one bedroom flats. The project involved reuniting the basement garden and the raised ground floor flats into a two bedroom two bathroom family maisonette. The property was completely refurbished and extended including restoring period features. The bedrooms and bathrooms are located on the upper floor with access via external steps to the garden.
In the basement a formal living room is separated at the front from the more relaxed kitchen dining family space at the rear facing the garden which is reached via a stepped terrace bringing light into the heart of the space. The glazed side extension turns a former dark side passage into a dining area in a minimalist modern way without pastiche or competing with the Georgian building.
