From Store to Studio in Trendy Notting Hill

Set within a period property in trendy West London's Notting Hill this desirable studio apartment was fashioned from a disused cloth retailers store.


With RBKC's strict policy on converting retail to residential in the Borough a careful and sympathetic redesign was required to ensure permission was granted.


The design reflected the surrounds and an eclectic period/industrial chic look were crafted and implemented.


With the benefit of a courtyard garden and the vaults to the from being converted into a walk-in-wardrobe, the open-plan studio arrangement creates a spacious and welcoming atmosphere.


Specially chosen antique reclaimed tiles and exposed shower fittings along with crackle-glazed Metro tiles introduce a little period splendour to the bathroom with the contemporary kitchenette offsetting the large format herringbone floor to the main room.


All-in-all the transformation from unwanted storeroom to desirable studio apartment was a resounding success in the heart of the historical Portobello Road market area of Notting Hill.
