This ambitious two phase project involved the modernisation and extension of a Victorian semi-detached property set on a residential street in a prime area of Hampstead Heath; adjacent to the Hampstead Heath ponds. Phase one involved stripping back the existing structure to its brickwork shell and a substantial temporary works scheme including piling and underpinning. Internal steel frames were erected and the floors re-pitched. The roof was also completely re-built; incorporating a new loft space. Phase two commenced after planning permission was granted for a basement dig out to create a swimming pool and gym area. The property was refurbished to the highest standard with finishes that include marble throughout, mosaic feature walls, cantilevered and stainless steel self supporting zig zag staircases, handmade chandeliers, bespoke joinery installations and extensive landscaping work.
