PRINCES GATE MEWS

LONDON SW7

Project Size: 1,500Sq Ft

Construction Period : 42 Weeks

Completed : September 2000

One of the first projects by Bluebottle, this is a case study in exquisite detailing within a small space that only has windows on the front elevation. A central staircase with a new skylight above acts as a vertical light-well to maximise the feeling of space. All primary living areas occupy the front of the house, to benefit from the original windows natural light. Secondary spaces - bedrooms and bathrooms - are placed at the rear and enjoy diffused light from the vertical light-well, as well as funnelled daylight from a skylight behind the central stair core.

Bespoke joinery throughout, including a solid walnut vanity unit in the master bedroom, makes this home a timeless classic.
