NewsMarylebone Mews House retrofit features in Architects’ Journal

Our Marylebone Mews House retrofit in West London has been published in the Architects' Journal.

The project has been completed following extensive renovation work, including a basement extension and facade remodelling at ground floor level. It is a stunning example of a beautifully updated mews house located in the heart of London. With careful planning and attention to detail, Patalab Architects have transformed the space into a modern family home, while preserving the historic character of the mews house.

Client’s view

We are delighted with the outcome of the remarkable project. Throughout the construction process, we encountered several significant challenges that needed to be overcome. Foremost among these was the need to relocate the services for an adjacent block of flats that ran through our property. The architects and services engineer devised a strategy to minimise disruption to the neighbouring residents while also considering cost-efficiency and the smooth progression of the overall works for the main contractor.

Furthermore, the project was undertaken during an exceptionally challenging period for the construction industry, with the repercussions of Brexit, the ongoing impact of Covid-19, and the Ukraine war causing labour and material shortages, as well as high inflation. In addition to these external difficulties, we had to negotiate and secure 12 Party Wall Awards. Nevertheless, under the expert guidance of Patalab and the rest of the design team, we were able to navigate through this process with relatively little stress. The end result not only stayed within the budget but also stands as one of the most impressive finished products we have witnessed.
