Apartment refurbishment in a Grade II* Listed Wells Coates Modernist residential building in Kensington, London

The brief called for a contemporary refurbishment sympathetic to the Modernist intentions of the original architect. The apartment has been meticulously renovated by mwai in a contemporary minimalist style aimed at enhancing the inherent architectural qualities and emphasising existing features such as the spiral staircase and the over-sized wooden sash windows.

A fully bespoke architectural fit out with purpose designed furniture and joinery adds to the overall composition of the space.
