Despite the current precarious state of the world, we are lucky to be able to see our refurbishment project on Upper Wimpole Street drawing to a close.
The project was the renovation and rethinking of a two-bedroom apartment in a listed Georgian townhouse. Due to the brief presented by the client and restrictions on structural works, the project focussed on creating an internal architecture through joinery.
The generously proportioned rooms enabled large stage set-sized cabinets to form numerous antechambers, connected by arched portals.
The language of the project speaks of a modern abstraction of a Regency style, borrowing from classical references and employing proportions, curves and cornices, which were in turn borrowed from Grand Tours of Europe in the 17th and 18th Centuries.
