This London townhouse underwent a major refurbishment which saw the original townhouse and neighbouring mews property become one luxurious family home. Located in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, this home is now a contemporary, light-filled space. Three pane minimal windows sliding glass doors were used to connect the main home and end of garden office to the courtyard garden. The family living room and kitchen benefit from a huge influx of natural light thanks to the ultra slim frames on the sliding patio doors.
Externally the home maintained the historic 19th century façade, while the inside of the home was completely transformed from a dark and dull space into an open plan layout which follows a modern and neutral interior design style. The use of warm neutral tones gives the family home a sense of comfort and combined with the vast amount of light helps the space to appear bigger. The slim sliding doors can be opened in warm weather to create an indoor-outdoor living space which is becoming increasingly sought after. Even with the doors closed the slim aluminium frames offer clear views of the outdoors and aid in forging a connection between the interior and exterior spaces.
