    Concept Design

Park House occupies a one-acre site close to the centre of South Kensington, discretely hidden behind other buildings. The house, which is not listed was originally built in 1841 and had been much altered over the years.

The new version proposes selective demolition of redundant elements combined with the addition of sensitively designed extensions centred around a new private courtyard.

The design seeks to re-instate key aspects of the original appearance of the buildings and was informed by extensive historic analysis of the site’s evolution. Planning Permission was granted in 2018.

As the first major ‘super-prime’ project undertaken by the office we were able to define new ways of working appropriate to this kind of project – a skill set which has led to many other projects.
