We have reimagined this small one-bedroom apartment in a Mayfair Mansion block for a busy, professional who wanted a minimalist, uncluttered ‘pied-a-terre’ while working in London and internationally.
The apartment was old and tired on purchase, and the previous configuration did not make the most of its best attributes. To create an elegant, efficient footprint we removed and replaced all the walls, floors and ceilings and remade the apartment making the most of the limited space available.
The main challenge was to maximise the useable space; therefore, a lot of attention was given to minimising the footprint of the WC and kitchen by incorporating them into a cleverly configured wet room in the centre of the plan. The reconfigured WC is now accessed off the bedroom, using a pivoting flush door to separate the rooms, and the kitchen is seamlessly panelled into the room wall lining. To keep the interior sleek yet functional, we developed bespoke concealed storage and collaborated with specialist joiners to create a specifically crafted kitchen and living room cabinetry, complete with a folding work desk.
