This Victorian Town House is located in the popular West London residential area of Maida Vale. It was largely developed with purpose built Victorian and Edwardian mansion blocks. Our site was a Victorian town house in Castellain Road requiring careful remodelling and restoration of its many authentic features. The idea was to bring the property back -as much as possible- to how it would have been when it was first completed. We preserved all the original mouldings, cornicing, balustrades, dado rails and fireplaces and ensured that necessary modifications were carried out in a way that is discrete and sensitive to the period building. However, when new insertions were made these were not pastiche but subtly modern so that a distinction could be made between contemporary and historic elements within the interior. We worked with skilled shopfitting joiners who were particularly adept at finding this balance by referring to precedents without slavishly copying these.
