PRINCES GATE MEWS
Project Size: 1,500Sq Ft
Construction Period : 42 Weeks
Completed : September 2000
One of Bluebottle’s first projects, Princes Gate Mews is a case study in exquisite detailing within a small space. With windows on the front elevation only, 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 natural light from the original windows. Secondary spaces – bedrooms and bathrooms – are situated 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.
