2 Westbourne Grove Mews

This was a challenging project for which we created a perfectly-formed mews development in a conservation area encompassing two unique houses and two practical commercial units. It is located on a constricted London mews site in Notting Hill.

While remaining sympathetic to the existing area and context, maximising every inch of space on the site was paramount. This was achieved by introducing a double basement which did not impact on the visible scale of the development. This extra space accommodates a kitchen, dining areas and additional recreational rooms, such as cinema and gym/spa areas, and provides a lower level for the commercial units, complete with a double car stacker.

Natural light sources were enhanced wherever possible through the use of skylights, glazed floors, light wells into the courtyard gardens, glass balustrading and glass stair treads.

With the choice of materials, we felt that the smallest detail had to be right or the whole feel of the scheme would be compromised. We mixed traditional materials like natural slate and London stock brick that were already a part of the existing mews palette with complementary contemporary elements such as aluminium coping and frameless or concealed frame windows. The houses are beautiful, light and airy, and will add to Notting Hill’s stock of high quality homes.
