A large Knightsbridge townhouse behind Harrods underwent a radical refurbishment – to the point where only the outer walls were left standing following demolition. Working closely with Tim Flynn Architects, this was a challenging and technically demanding four-year project. It required completely redesigning and rebuilding the house and installing cutting-edge technology that was virtually invisible.
Our role was significant: designing and installing a Savant home automation system, bespoke audio-visual, Lutron lighting and Panasonic telecoms across six floors that were connected by a tubular glass lift. No detail was too small: the ambient lighting and temperature in the wine cellar could be controlled, to the nearest degree, by iPad.
With bespoke furniture and light fittings throughout, we had to carefully craft technology systems to each location. Built to an exacting finish by Walter Lilly, the main contractor, the end result is spectacular.
We were invited to collaborate with Symm Construction on a significant Grade II listed town house in Kensington.
Some projects are without comparison, and none epitomises this more than an apartment in Holland Park, previously used as a studio by a renowned British painter.
