A luxury London Mews House by TG Studio
London-based architectural practice, TG-Studio , has designed the London Mews House project. Completed in 2014, the three-storey terraced mews house was formerly used as an office building but was bought by a well-known fashion and horse photographer in 2012. The luxury Mews House is located in the Fitzrovia area of London, England.
The luxury London property now comprises ground floor office space, cloakroom WC and a guest bedroom with en-suite; first floor, a large feature kitchen, dining and living area; second floor a large master bedroom with en-suite and walk in wardrobe.
The house was stripped down to its structural walls and roof, and reinstated as a new modern home. All of the external walls and roof were insulated and all windows and doors replaced. Some of the windows were extended to the floor and have a Juliet balcony.
The new laws re fire prevention allowed TG-Studio to plan a house without corridors and doors so it now has the feel of a New York loft despite the fact that it is in a traditional cobbled London Mews.. The interior design allows for a lot of hidden storage with handleless cupboards blending in to the walls. The client wanted a large walk-in wardrobe and spacious bedroom which was achieved on the second floor. The master bedroom features a bespoke bed made for the client by TG-Studio
‘Mike’s taste of a New York retro meets luxurious Fitzrovia makes the master bathroom look unique’ says Thomas Griem. TG-Studio have selected traditional bevelled white tiles and mixed them with a lavish arabascato marble, matt black lacquer and grey basalt stone alongside an exposed brick wall. The bathroom fittings are a traditional English design complimenting the freestanding bath.
Clever layout design under the sloping roof allowed for the building of a five metre long walk in wardrobe and shelving. The clever use of mirror emphasises the sleek interior design.
The client wanted the first floor to be as open-plan as possible, The kitchen by Doca has a joinery feel and features a new matt gum finish. The worktop is sandblasted granite and the splash back is TG Studio’s signature arabascato marble. Exposed brickwork is a feature along the window wall
In the living room the oak floorboards continue up the end wall and finish at a lighting feature which adds to the feeling of height. Two of the windows were replaced by French doors. A window casing out of solid oak was fitted to emphasise the new thickness and solidity of the external walls. The TV unit is a TG-Studio bespoke design made for the client.
Adelto spoke with TG Studio and here is what they said about the project…
How did you put personality into this bedroom? It looks very stylish
The bedroom has a strong colour theme only white, beige and blue has been used. By placing gold items like the bedside table, cushion, inside of the wall lamps and organic beige rustic brick and oak window sills the total arrangement oozes style.
What was the design influence in the bathroom? And why did you pick a monochrome theme?
The influence was imperial London. Grand halls in black and white marble and utilitarian white bevelled tiled kitchens. We translated that into black granite and matt painted wood with accents of veined white marble.
What most stands out for you in this home?
I am really please with having achieved a metropolitan lifestyle in a cute London mews house. Where as the façade says cobbled street and brick home, the open plan feel form is New York loft living.
TG-Studio also fully furnished the Mews House which was complemented by the owner’s personal art.
