Initially a pair of substantial nineteenth-century townhouses, later an inner-city school, and most recently the sprawling Embassy of Kuwait, the Grade II listed Queensgate has a fascinating story to tell. We considered it both an honour and a privilege when we were invited to contribute to yet another exciting chapter. Past, present, and future would come together as we contributed to the conversion of the building into a collection of family homes.

The brief was to create a series of contemporary air-conditioned spaces with underfloor heating and bespoke lighting features. Our response was to develop a cohesive, confidently restrained contemporary architectural design that allowed for these advanced facilities to be discreetly integrated without compromising their functionality.

We intended that the design process should respond positively to the stringent requirements imposed by the listing, conceiving these conditions less as limitations than opportunities that could inform and enrich the integrity of the design. Meticulous attention was paid to the selection of materials, and how these would frame the most noteworthy architectural features, from the sizeable windowpanes and doors to the elaborate cornicing and fireplaces.
