Residential refurbishment project which sought to extend and modernise the existing first floor flat in a mews in west London

It is located above an earlier office fit-out for Innovation RCA, which provides business support to students and graduates at the Royal College of Art.

The project has opened up the existing confined spaces and exposed the roof trusses to provide a generous, bright living area and open kitchen that has a feeling of space and character.

A controlled palette of timber floors and joinery with white walls provides a refined backdrop to a contemporary home. The two-bedroom apartment was also extended to the rear, with a new terrace established.
