Cadogan Projects by Helen Green Design
Helen Green Design have recently been appointed to work on two prestigious projects in the Cadogan area situated in between Knightsbridge and Belgravia. It is a prime residential location in London that has the additional benefit of the Kings Road at its doorstep. With this being such a popular residential location, we thought we’d share some history and details of the surrounding area.
Cadogan Square is known for being one of the most desired and expensive residential streets in the UK. The square was named after Earl Cadogan and although most are now residential properties, some buildings are still used for diplomatic and educational purposes. The square is centred around the small private garden comprised of Flemish influenced architecture distinguished by the traditional red brick renowned to the area.
Turning east you will find yourself upon Cadogan Place Park, featuring both a north and south garden. It is known to be one of the larger residential gardens in the area and is listed on the Historic England register with extensive links to London’s past, many add this park to the list of must see when visiting London. The park dates to the late 18th century and was once the site of the London Botanic Gardens. By the early 19th century it had become a public promenade, over time becoming the private gardens for the newly developed residences of Cadogan Place.
Hidden behind Cadogan Place Square you will find Cadogan Lane, where another of our new projects is based. Cadogan Lane was once known as Little Cadogan Place. From its small beginnings in the late 18th century, development grew into the 20th century and now the lane mainly consists of small mews houses which sits in contrast to the large houses of Cadogan Place.
