This London apartment is located in a Georgian townhouse from 1860 and despite many details from the original period, ARCHITECTURE FOR LONDON designed it clean and contemporary. The project reconfigures a first floor apartment to provide an open plan kitchen in the living room which allows the creation of an additional bedroom. The damaged original floorboards were also sanded and stained with soap to restore their original attractiveness. In the kitchen, a Carrara marble tabletop and splash guard match the antique-style fireplaces on the opposite side of the room. The bathroom has beautiful herringbone tiled walls and underfloor heating with fog-free mirrors.
