These luxurious red brick apartments were among the first to be designed in the revived Queen Anne Style based on early 18th century English and Dutch architecture.
This iconic London building was returned to its original splendour through extensive restoration and refurbishment. The brick façade, and other
masonry structures such as the chimney stacks, had suffered extensive
weather damage that required major refurbishment. The stacks were rebuilt using reclaimed bricks to match the existing. Cleaning of the old brickwork provided the property with the bright finish it would have had when first built.
The flat roof and its supporting structure were altered and refurbished. An insurance guaranteed Derbigum roof system was substituted for the old roof. The pitched roof areas were given new slates and the supporting structures were similarly altered and refurbished.
Because of its central London location, the building's stonework had been corroded by atmospheric pollution. Kenyon’s stonemasons worked closely with the design team to develop an optimum method of restoring this important period feature.
Elements of the building's joinery required sensitive repair and, in some cases, complete replacement.
New water tanks were installed and air conditioning was provided throughout.
