Elvaston Mews transformed into a contemporary London home

Luxury-Homes-London-04

London-based property developer, McKinley Spaces, have transformed a 19th century London mews house into an award-winning contemporary property using elements of light, space and nature. Completed in 2013, the luxury property can be found on Elvaston Mews, South Kensington, London, England.

The architects re-structured the original 19th century stable mews house, transforming it into a clean, contemporary urban living space, adapted for comfortable living and discreet entertaining. The property received a 2013 International Property Award as the best single residential development in London.

The simplicity and clean lines of the interior architecture is emphasised by the application of a carefully selected shade of white on all walls, reflecting the light to further illuminate the property during daylight hours. The dominant use of glass and steel further heightens the sense of light and space. On the upper level a spectacular roof terrace has been created through the engineering of an innovative internal steel and glass mezzanine which sits below a retractable glass roof. Accessible by a set of glass stairs, this inspired design feature not only supplements outdoor space but also allows light to penetrate through the building, streaming through the strategically placed glass floors and screens.

Adelto loves the set of minimal, bespoke suspended steel and glass stairs that connect to the glass landings on the ground, first and second floors. These strikingdesign features not only allow light to penetrate throughout the property, but also bring a sense of transparency and a feeling of flotation.

Other notable interior design features include a pneumatic cylindrical lift which gives access to all floors. There is also a stackable garage to give off road parking to two cars.
