The revival of a
grand London townhouse

Belgrave Square

The role of a heritage architect is to ensure the preservation of historic buildings, while allowing them to live, remaining useful and relevant to contemporary needs.

Compromised through the actions of previous occupants, this 1825, Grade I Listed grand terrace house designed by George Basevi, is returned to it’s original condition as a substantial family home, sensitively adapted to meet the needs of contemporary living. This is achieved through conservation and restoration of grand and formal period rooms balanced by the formation of new basement levels that connect with a rear mews which creates spaces of comfort and convenience for day to day living.

The divisions between formal and informal, public, and private, that characterises large historic homes remains a relevant model to many of today’s eminent families.
