46-48 Grosvenor Gardens

An unloved, almost derelict Grade II listed building in Victoria was transformed into a market-leading office building. Coupled with the addition of residential space to the mews at the rear of the building, this project has been a great success story for our client.

The building had been insensitively altered in the 1970s with the original stair having been removed from number 48. Many steels had been inserted, roofs were replaced with plant rooms and much of the original fabric was removed.

We were tasked with upgrading the building to meet modern standards. This meant the removal of the single lift and 1970s rambling staircase. These were replaced with a new twin lift core, new rationalised stair core and modern elegant toilet facilities. The entrance to the commercial space was rationalised with both 46 and 48 leading into a common reception. An unused, dirty light well between the commercial building and residential mews to the rear was covered with a striking glass roof to create additional usable internal space and bring quality light into the floors.

The mews property was sensitively extended to create three elegant contemporary apartments.
