Abingdon Villas, Kensington
The project consisted of the underground extension and refurbishment of a premier property in Kensington for a high profile celebrity in the music industry. The property boasts a basement cinema room, impressive wet room and high quality finishes throughout the five floors.
This project involved a double basement construction and renovations to the already existing three story terrace house. The works included a Pudlo waterproof shell with secondary Newton System damp proofing.
The property has polished concrete floors with underfloor heating finish on the lower ground floor and basement, along with floating staircase down to the basement.
The basement includes an office, self-contained flat with independent access, two W/C’s, bespoke cabinet storage and a cinema room with state of the art AV system and bespoke wood panelling opening onto a glass light-well that transforms into an outdoor ‘Zen’ room.
The lower ground floor has been designed to include a children’s TV room and kitchen with bespoke cabinets, fish scale tile splash back and custom concrete slab worktop. The kitchen opens onto a paved patio with raised grass area.
Two sets of stairs provide access to the grass area. The first floor houses the two children’s bedrooms and the second floor has been transformed into a mezzanine master bedroom and en-suite with steam shower.
