This is a unique project in London involving the restoration of a Grade I listed Regency Villa by the celebrated eighteenth century architect Decimus Burton (1800-1881) who worked with Neo-Classicist John Nash. It is the least altered of the architectural ensemble of Regent’s Park villas and is distinctly set in grounds separated from the Park by the Grand Union Canal. Nuffield Lodge is therefore located very much on the edge of Regent’s Park and within an impressive four acre site made up of an ornamental garden with outbuildings including stables, an annexe and small garden follies. It is, in fact, set in what is one of the largest private gardens in the city. Our role has been to oversee and carry out a full refurbishment of the property. To this end, we have put in place a schedule for phased works including necessary restoration and building maintenance works. In 2014, we were asked to look at the removal and replacement of the roof of Nuffield Lodge House in collaboration with The Crown Estate.
