Rodić Davidson were commissioned to lead the renovation of a large duplex apartment near Harrods in Knightsbridge. The apartment is arranged over the two principal floors of a fine Grade-II Listed building in the Hans Town Conservation Area. The property has tall, red brick façades with ornate detailing, characteristic of the Queen-Anne Revival Style that makes up much of Knightsbridge and the Hans Town area.
These townhouses were originally built in the late 1800s as single-family houses. The principal floors of the building have bay windows at the front and rear, but over time the rooms had been split into a labyrinth of small spaces. We removed these to create large, bright dining and drawing rooms towards the front facing the street and generous bedrooms to the rear.
The interiors have been carefully crafted to provide a luxurious home with bespoke joinery and detailed finishes. The stairwell is a focal element, with delicate curved polished plaster wall and bespoke balusters, a modern interpretation of the decorative cast iron Art-Deco balusters popular during 1930s Europe and Britain.
The property has been sensitively renovated in order to enhance and reinstate the qualities of the Listed building. Rodić Davidson secured Planning and Listed Building Consent for the refurbishment and also managed the wider professional team, co-ordinating the License for Alterations, Party Wall Awards and other necessary consents. Interior Design by Elycion. Construction by Rigby and Rigby.
