NewsKensington Gardens Apartment

We have recently completed the refurbishment of Kensington Gardens Apartment, a three-bedroom flat in Kensington, West London.

When visiting Kensington Gardens Apartment for the first time we were struck by the leaf-filled view benefitting the old-fashioned sitting room. To the north and east you could see trees extending down Kensington Road and across Kensington Gardens, the palace just hidden by the extensive greenery. A large London plane tree to the front of the property gave the front room a delightful tree-house quality as you looked into the crown of branches.

Liberating the view, we removed all internal partitions to this side of the apartment which not only allowed the living space and kitchen to enjoy the vantage across the park but also created a larger, light-filled space better suited to a young family. Further stripping out resulted in the reclamation of a hidden window (formerly concealed behind one of many internal walls) and the extension of floor to ceiling height throughout. To compliment this new openness we chose a pared-back palette - light oak flooring and white-painted walls and ceilings - and then injected moments of bright colour to emphasise the new airy composition. A new full height crimson pivot door feels like a piece of artwork in the hallway, it’s large scale and vibrant colour providing a statement in the entrance that reflects the generous proportions of its surroundings.
