Lansdowne Rd, Holland Park

Lansdowne road is a lovely, heavily landscaped and green spot near Holland Park. LUX Construction was approached about this Lansdowne Road property because few other renovation and construction firms combine the expertise necessary to work on listed buildings, the all-around design and build capacity and the design sensitivity needed to make this project really shine.

This home suffered from many of the problems that always seem to beset listed buildings. Whilst very impressive from the front, its internal spaces were dark and uninteresting, and the floor levels varied by as much as six inches. The property did benefit from a rear garden, but the green space was difficult to access or even see from most parts of the house.

We were able to secure planning permission for a basement extension and a large conservatory on the ground floor. We fitted the conservatory space out as a television and sitting room, just off the main dining area.

The kitchen was extensively refit, and now features a central island with a hob. This feature alone more than doubled the effective counter space. The home’s two bathrooms got a new look as well. One now features separate bath and shower facilities and walls and floor of luxurious black-veined marble tile. The other features elegant grey marble and a slate shower, which complements the avant-garde all glass basins beautifully.

The new deck placed atop the conservatory lets the owners make better use of something quite rare in the city – open space that isn’t overlooked from all angles.

The full internal refit also gave us the opportunity to address some problems that had bothered the owners for years. All of the internal floors were replaced and levelled, removing several internal step-ups. Two upstairs rooms were combined to give a new master bedroom incorporating a bay window, which the owners tell us is now their favourite room in the house.
