Academy Gardens

Kensington, London

Reconfigure and refurbish a high-specification 3-bedroom private apartment.


We have a strong ongoing relationship with the management of Academy Gardens, and historically significant and pristinely-kept building in Kensington. We have refurbished four apartments there now.

Recently, we were engaged to manage the reconfiguration and decoration of the Academy Gardens apartment in which a successful banker and his young family live while they are in London.

We made internal alterations in the drawing room to allow for reorientation and the creation of two distinct zones, one for media and the other for conversation. Similarly, the especially long hallway was reconfigured and a new casual living area created within it, where members of the family can rest a while or attend to jobs at the writing desk.

We collaborated with the finest artisans to achieve finishes such as crackle lacquering and to produce fine features like the fretwork doors in the hallway, fabric-panelled walls in the master bedroom and wood- panelled walls
