design et al are delighted to announce that Mdesign London have been shortlisted for Residential £20 Million Plus (Property by Value) Award within The International Design and Architecture Awards 2018.
This project involved restoring this exquisite Grade II listed white stuccoed property to its former glory as a family home, blending meticulous restoration with the ultimate in modern design and luxury. From the start, the brief was clear and uncompromising: to go beyond luxury and touch perfection. Mdesign London set out to respect and, wherever possible, restore the building’s original features, from the central oak staircase to the striking cornicing. The designers wanted the property to epitomise the ultimate in twenty-first century living, blending architectural heritage with a visionary design aesthetic and the ultimate in luxury to create something truly unique.
The vision was made reality through the use of the finest materials, sumptuous fabrics, hand crafted furniture and specialist finishes from around the world. These were complemented by custom-made creations from acclaimed artisans, each at the pinnacle of their craft. Bespoke details set this property apart, the hand-crafted one-of-a-kind headboard in the master bedroom, the architectural staircase to the leisure floor at basement level, the glazed link providing glorious natural light to basement level.
The light filled drawing room, the intimate family reception room, the contemporary take on a classic dining room, each space has its own distinctive character, coming together to create an exquisite family home. The glazed link between the entrance hall and family reception room provides a wonderful source of natural light to the lower floors. The modern architectural addition beautifully compliments the more classical features of the property.
As one of London’s most prestigious districts, Belgravia is rich in history. Great care has been taken to ensure the modern design compliments the historical features at the property. The scale and grandeur of the design reflects and reinforces the imposing proportions of the property, enhancing period detail with the seamless interweaving of innovative new features. The end result blends meticulous aesthetics with functionality and absolute luxury to create an elegantly balanced experience which at the same time reveals distinctive touches in every room.
