This was a complete renovation of a five-storey historical Victorian property in the beautiful district of Notting Hill in west London. The shell of the home was intended to be left intact, retaining the history of the building; however, much of the inside was to be modernised, and our job was to provide the architectural hardware which suited the property’s heritage and the new design scheme.
To accomplish this, we provided a range of our window sashes and casements: our Darlington I lever handle which has a Victorian aesthetic, as well as our Archibald (DK1022) and Beresford (DK1046) door knobs.
To complete this project, we worked closely with an architect, Buller Welsh, and the builder, GPF Lewis; a collaboration that proved fruitful and efficient.
“Buller Welsh were approached by the client for this project to undertake a modernisation of their home whilst retaining the charm and traditional features of the existing building and maintaining a sense of quality. All of this led towards the use of dark bronze for accessories throughout the build. A timeless, classic material which complements modern and traditional design alike.
The client developed a palette of colours from Little Greene and worked with us on choosing complementary stone, tile and leather finishes as well as light fittings. We needed to source ironmongery that would sit comfortably in a traditional building whilst demonstrating a contemporary edge to unify the traditional features with the modern interventions. Joseph Giles were able to deliver this with their Beresford Door Knob and other items.
We selected the products with the client to ensure the style and finishes unified every aspect of the project, with the dark bronze ironmongery matching the joinery edges, and electrical accessories of the upper floor. Brushed nickel and satin stainless steel were used on the lower ground floor to complement the commercial kitchen units.”
