Grosvenor Crescent Mews House
Today’s design inspiration comes from a redeveloped historic Mews house, located within the exclusive Grosvenor Crescent Mews in London’s fashionable Belgravia district. The residence, which formerly consisted of two floors and a partial basement, has undergone a complete interior renovation and transformation, including a bit of basement excavation. The interior architecture has been reconfigured into 4 floors of sleek contemporary design living space by the property developer Landmass-London, a company known for the design and development of some of the most coveted properties in prime central London.
The development, directed by Alan Waxman, orchestrated top interior architecture designers and skilled craftsmen over a 24 month period to create an exquisite luxury home to exacting standards with a high level of finish out. Everything has been custom created of bespoke design for a truly unique home. The traditional design of the cottage-style exterior façade gives little indication of the four floors of luxurious interiors that have been cleverly created behind it. Being a Mews house, the introduction of natural light was a key focus for Landmass’s design team. The home is only open with windows on its front side. To compensate for this, an inner atrium was created in a back corner of the property to allow light to flow through the house on all levels.
On the ground level, the front door opens into the contemporary design entrance hall with wide plank walnut timber floors that lead to the kitchen and dining room and also gives access to the garage and stairway. The hall includes a bespoke design leather paneled coat closet. Moving through, you pass over the glass floor and glass walled area that is open to the basement level below. Glass floors are used in various places throughout to allow the natural light to flow. The high style, sophisticated design kitchen features lacquered custom cabinetry with quartz stone counter-tops. The appliances are from Miele, which includes double refrigerators , double ovens, and double dishwashers. There is also a wine fridge from Gaggenau.
At the back of the house, the floor and ceiling stop short at glass balustrades on each of the upper levels to form the inner atrium. The space is open from the basement level below, up through to the sophisticated design electronically opening glass roof. Natural light and air floods into the house through this space, which has been further dramatized by the installation of a custom indoor water feature on the back wall. Water trickles down bronze slabs, from the top of the house to the Zen garden in the basement.
The basement level was made possible by digging down extra deep with a basement excavation, with a bit of both praise and controversy. The excavation enabled the developer to align all the ceiling heights and ensure that the rooms were of good volume. On this level there is a casual sunken living space which is used as a media room with a large plasma screen and surround sound, complete with custom furnishings of bespoke design. The space includes a central fireplace with glass walls and custom library shelving. A full bar is included down here with a Gagganau wine fridge and cigar humidor. There is also a study, a steam room, and a Zen garden.
Upstairs, on the first floor, there is a more formal drawing room and a guest bedroom with an en suite bathroom. The interior design of these rooms is clean and edited for a timeless look. These luxurious interiors include custom silk rugs, contemporary design furnishings, and fine finishes with bespoke detailing. The home also features under floor heating throughout, even in the garage, as well as a fully integrated home automation and security system, with LCD screen displays and finger-print recognition locks.
The master bedroom suite is on the top floor and features glamorous interiors including a sleek dressing room with custom closets and bespoke design display cabinets. The marble master bath has both a Dornbracht rain shower and a separate soaking tub. The third bedroom with en suite bath is also on this level, which completes this home.
The home quickly sold and went on to win several awards for its redesign.
That concludes our design inspiration for today my friends. I hope you all have enjoyed and been inspired by this home’s renovation and reinvention, which is full of interior design ideas.
