Working with Architect Stiff + Trevillion, a plan was developed creating 20 high-end residential apartments, ranging from one to three bedrooms, and an amazing duplex penthouse with unimpeded 360 degree views from a 1,386 ft sq. wrap around terrace. In addition, a new retail unit was created on the ground floor.
From formerly being listed as one of Westminster's ugliest buildings, the new Westbourne House was nominated for the 2015 International Design & Architecture Awards in the Overall Development shortlist.
Westbourne House, London
Client: Alchemi Group
Architect: Stiff & Trevillion
The building was constructed in the 1980’s as commercial office space with retail to the ground floor including NatWest Bank who will remain in operation throughout the duration of the project.
The clients vision is to refurbish the existing commercial space into sixteen exclusive dwellings. The apartments will be two and three bedroom spread over seven floors, 40.000 ft sq.
In the development of this project, we considered and managed tight site constraints within a Central London location and paid careful consideration to the existing tenant.
Our design included, underfloor heating to all living spaces, bedrooms and bathrooms, comfort cooling provided to reception areas and bedrooms, Flos KAP ceiling lighting and feature Bocci lighting. The renovation was completed in 2015 with all but three of the apartments sold.
