Robert Maxwell was appointed to carry out the refurbishment of a Grade II listed property in Kensington, London. The response looked to develop the existing penthouse apartment, creating a more open plan living arrangement on the top floor with access to balconies either side. The existing property was in such poor repair that a complete strip out of the internal structure was required. This allowed the reappointment of the interior using modern materials, fixtures and fittings to greatly improve the efficiency and comfort of the home. A new heating system was installed, hidden in places were aesthetically preferable, along with new electrics and extensive LED lighting. Starting from scratch also afforded us the opportunity to make more effective use of the downstairs space, manipulating the subdivisions to allow for three bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as a walk-in-wardrobe in the master suite, creating a significantly more versatile arrangement.
