The Eaton Square property is in a Grade II*listed building within the City of Westminster Belgravia Conservation Area, originally built as grand townhouses by Cubitt in the 1830s.
Eric Parry Architects have set out to create a contemporary residence with an improved relationship to the rear garden, all the while respecting its architectural heritage. The two levels are connected via an elliptical stair and collaboration with the lighting designer Ingo Maurer looked to define the image and experience of the approach to the staircase.
The proposed alterations to the existing structure involved removing load bearing walls at lower ground to help create a large family room. The aim was to re-establish the elegance of the original house, whilst simultaneously maximising natural light with an extension that is sympathetic the existing building.
