The refurbishment of a mews house in London to provide new live/work accommodation for the owner an adjacent boutique.

Set within an interconnected series of whitewashed mews houses and a former dairy in London’s Knightsbridge, the Egg boutique features an eclectic collection of clothes and household goods, carefully collected and displayed by the proprietor.

Inspired by the essentialism of Egg’s approach and by the informal character of the mews, we have inserted a series of room-sized containers within the first floor of the building to create a new pied-a-terre for the owner above the shop. These boxes sit within the volume of the pitched roof and create the ‘nest-like’ atmosphere of an attic or storeroom; they are made from whitewashed softwood and chipboard, echoing the soft linens in her collection.

On the ground floor the project includes a bespoke timber bath, supplied by Studio Anna van der Lei, and set within a bathroom that opens up to the street and doubles as a meeting room for the Egg team.
