Grosvenor Crescent is ranked as the UK’s most expensive residential street, with an average house price of £16m.
This scheme involved the conversion of five Grade II Listed terrace dwellings.
Major structural alterations and adaptations transformed the property into three terrace dwellings and seven bespoke apartments
Challenges included managing safe occupation of adjacent properties during demolitions whilst temporary works were being undertaken.
Located in a major conservation area, Korendon liaised with English Heritage and building control to ensure H&S, CDM-C regulations and heritage guidance were strictly adhered to. This was controlled successfully across all aspects of the project.
Acting as main internal fit-out contractor, we collaborated with the design team to provide a service that encompassed everything from preliminary drywall setting out and framing, to manufacture and installation of the bespoke balustrades for each apartment.
We worked with designers in New York to specify cutting edge technologies and high-end materials such as designer glass sourced from a manufacturer in California.
Other luxury bespoke installations included:
Internal doors inlaid with a detailed bronze inner frame
Highly complicated recessed ceiling build up
Purpose made bath frames with hidden openable hinge system and a single piece of marble fascia.
We created unique balustrades from photographs of originals, the design and finish of which was signed off by English Heritage during the first inspection.
