Private Residence, Chelsea
Located in the heart of London, the owners of this privately-owned, Grade II listed family home came to Chelsea Construction Company with some very specific goals; to introduce more light by rebuilding the rear façade, allowing for much larger windows, and to increase the available space through the construction of roof dormers in the attic as well a structural work to the lower ground level.
The history and location of the building made the whole project significantly more complicated:
- The construction of a rear façade demanded temporary works to support the property
- Underfloor heating needed careful design and build up to maximise the heat output
- Air-conditioning was installed without impacting on the design or heritage of the house
