Numerous layers of unsympathetic modern interventions were replaced with traditional mouldings and wall panelling as part of the Listed Building Consent.

Islington Townhouse

Canonbury, London

This Grade II Listed townhouse, originally built in 1812, had fallen into severe disrepair and required extensive remodelling. Almost every aspect of the original interior fabric had been lost, whilst the original floor plan had been unsympathetically altered beyond recognition.

After a long battle to achieve the required Planning and Listed Building Consents, this deep refurbishment reinstates the original floor plan with only minor refinements introduced to drastically improve efficiency and meet modern living.

Missing original features were carefully rebuilt or reinstated with salvaged elements, such as flooring, doors, fixtures and fittings from a similar period. Antique furniture pieces were selected to complete the interior design and create a contemporary home which respects the traditional townhouse. 

Farrow & Ball painted wall panels and mouldings offset the soaped pitch pine floors and natural sisal carpet, providing an elegant and contemporary aesthetic.
