One of the most exciting and substantial projects we collaborated on, a Grade II listed building of 18,000sq ft in Queen’s Gate Place with a prominent corner position overlooking Queen’s Gate Gardens.
Built ‘for people of wealth and distinction’ by Charles Aldin between 1865 and 1868, 5 and 6 Queen’s Gate Place were originally constructed as two separate houses but in the 1960’s were converted into eleven smaller apartments owned by Shell International Petroleum Company.
A scheme of six luxury lateral apartments, offering spacious light-filled rooms, some with ceiling heights of over twelve feet, with the original Doric portico of Number 6 providing a private entrance to the Show Apartment.
It was a crucial requirement to retain as many of the original period features including a superb stone staircase with wrought iron balustrade, ornate plaster ceilings and intricate cornices which was possible with the collaboration of our flooring design specialists.
Oak wood flooring was laid by our team throughout the siting rooms and bespoke stone slabs were applied in all bathrooms.
