Victorian Terraced House in Belsize Village, North-West London, NW3

restoration : interior design : bespoke furniture

Conservation Area


The Local Authority had condemned this five storey house as an 'unsafe structure' after it had been inhabited by squatters and neglected for years. Our brief was to repair and renew all structural elements of the building and restore the depleted period features, reinstating the original Victorian splendour. To suit our client's funding structure, we carried out the building works in phases.

We reconciled the floor pan to create an open plan structure to the living areas, ideal for modern family life. The bespoke hardwood furniture in the kitchen provides up-to-date amenities whilst expressing the classic style of the house, and is finished in a range of Victorian dusky hues. In contrast, the white walls reflect the natural light from the large windows, creating a bright dining space. The natural palette we chose for the bathroom is based around sandy neutrals and adds a modern note, coupled harmoniously with the period-style fixtures and fittings.

We sanded and polished the original floorboards throughout the living areas and selected a fine carpet for the rest of the house.
