10 Douro Place Kensington, London
Set in a local Conservation area in the London Borough of Kensington and Chelsea this project sees the reworking of a building currently established as four separate flats into one single family home. Externally the various inconsistencies of window forms and stepping of the plan are harmonised to contribute to the appearance of the conservation area. Similarly a new portico is added at the front. Areas of flat roof are re-worked as Sedum roofs to improve upon the sustainability and ecology of the building. New additions are similarly finished in sedum and throughout a series of high quality rooflights are let into the roof to provide daylight and sunlight. Daylight is brought into the interior through a wide range of windows, rooflights and glazed screens. The stairwell provides light into the heart of each floor plan. Solar cells are located in areas of retained slate roof.
