Hogarth Architects have remodelled the interior of a listed apartment on Queenâ€™s Gate Terrace in South Kensington, London.
Retaining the historic fire surround and cornice but removing later partitions and a false ceiling, the architects inserted a two-level timber structure containing the kitchen, bathroom, a mezzanine and storage.
A two-level timber structure that was inserted by the architects comprises a kitchen, bathroom, a mezzanine level and built-in storage and divides the space into three rooms with the help of a false ceiling.
â€œThe space is located on the first floor of a listed building,â€
explains project architect Hamish Herford.
â€œThe fire surround and cornice, by law, had to remain.â€
Herford adds: “The existing space was divided into three rooms with a false ceiling while the new design aims to restore the space back to its original proportions, which would have been as one room.”
The new structure was designed as a large piece of furniture to provide all the functions required by a man about town.
â€œThe picture of the small room [above] with a fold down bed is located on another floor but is part of the same project,â€ says Herford.

When a building such as a factory, an office or even odd spaces such as a church or a light tower are no longer used they get abandoned. There’s not much you can do with them, given their specific designs. However, ambitious architects and designers manage to revive these spaces and turn them into commercial spaces or cozy homes. This apartment, for example, is inside a former radio factory.
