Model House

Model House

This project for an internationally famous fashion model and her family extended a handsome existing villa in Notting Hill by adding an extra storey. The house is in a conservation area, so the extension is carefully designed to blend seamlessly with the original architecture.

As well as an attention to detail and creative spatial organisation, the focus of the project was how to finesse the new addition in relation to the planning regulations. This involved having an innate understanding of complex legislation and cultivating productive relationships with the local planning department, while at the same time optimising the client’s spatial and functional requirements. These include a home office and a huge walk-in wardrobe. [By Catherine Slessor*]
