Our portfolio spans the classic elegance of Kensington to the vibrant and international streets of Notting Hill. Here, we showcase a selection of our residential projects and the neighbourhoods they grace.

Kensington and Chiswick

In the heart of Kensington, we completed Pembroke Walk, a project that exemplifies our commitment to marrying contemporary design with the area’s historic character (Found Associates). Our approach to this project was one of sensitivity and innovation, ensuring that the final design respected the surrounding architecture while providing a modern living space.

Moving west to Chiswick, we brought our architectural expertise to Barrowgate Road. Here, we crafted a living space that speaks to the needs of modern families, all while complementing the verdant surroundings that Chiswick is known for. Both projects stand as a testament to our ability to blend the traditional with the new, a hallmark of luxury residential architects in London.
