Project Description

Work opening: 16th July 2018

This area was built in 1825 following the project of the architect George Basevi. This crescent of houses is built around a circle with a garden in a typical Georgian style. Buildings are Grade II listed, thus there are specific regulations conceiving the preservation and renovation of the crescent.

The house is entirely realized in wood and the interiors preserve refined historical finishing, such as the elaborated details of the staircase emerged during restoration works. The architectural project was designed to preserve and enhance socles, frames, decorations and the fireplaces – characterizing this property.

Most invasive interventions were made in bathrooms, where also sanitary systems needed a renovation. Italian marble were selected for bathrooms covering, Calacatta and Carrara white, slabs had to be laid on a wooden beam floor, which needed stiffening works. All other interiors will have precious finishing such as: floors in sisal with twine in cotton and coconut, and silk wall papers. The kitchen was completely refurbished, choosing among Boffi offer.
