G & T London successfully won the Regeneration Award Category in The International Design & Architecture Awards 2014 with their fantastic Myddelton Square project.
design et al are delighted to announce the shortlist of this fabulous Georgian townhouse on historic Myddelton Square in Islington, which has been transformed following its total restoration to create an spacious family home combining both period elegance with contemporary features. This is the largest and the last house to be built on the square in 1836. Number 58 had since been divided up into apartments before being used as a commercial office and then gradually deteriorating into a state of disrepair. This magnificent Georgian townhouse has now been restored back to its former glory and G & T London have raised the bar for luxury living in Islington.
Exceptional levels of fit and finish and detailing were central to the design brief. To achieve this, G&T London assembled an expert team of refurbishment specialists, including carpenters, decorators and ironmongers to breathe new life into the house. Original sash windows, ornate fireplaces, intricate cornicing, decorative cast iron railings and historic chimney pieces were painstakingly restored to the highest level of craftsmanship.
G&T London worked alongside Coffey Architects to create a design which sympathetically respects the traditional Georgian proportions, while also recognising the ways in which space should be structured by the needs and desires of modern life. The addition of modern features and contemporary technology results in a design that seamlessly bridges past and present. The result is an exceptional family home with superb living spaces and all modern comforts provided.
