The Article reads:
Helen Green Design (HGD), as well as our sister company Rigby & Rigby, were appointed to work on the refurbishment of a beautifully presented First Floor apartment overlooking the garden square.
Ennismore Gardens is a well-known location in Knightsbridge, surrounded by a range of listed buildings including complete palatial C19th terraced houses. The area is renowned for being one of the most sought after addresses in London. The brief for this residential project was to transform the existing listed property into a luxurious and elegant home for our client. Alongside the team of consultants and architects, HGD worked with the owner reviewing the property’s layout to accommodate their needs and lifestyle and create a unique and modern living space, remaining respectful to the historical value and listed features of the apartment. The main changes included creating a large En suite Bedroom at the front of the building overlooking the gardens and offering flexible space for entertainment, relaxation, and home office. Following a few months of spatial planning, the design team arrived with an incredible layout providing the client with a grand Entrance Hall, Drawing Room, Kitchen Dining Room, Media Room, Wine Room, Study, Master Suite as well as the Guest Bedroom with En Suite Bathroom and a Laundry Room. One of the key aspects of the property we wanted to celebrate and highlight with our design, is the sense of grandeur provided by 4m tall ceilings and abundance of light and greenery flooding the space through the floor-to-ceiling windows on the front facade. The interior architecture throughout the property connects the spaces with incredible listed ceiling detailing, complimented by the addition of gentle plaster panelling to walls. Materials and architectural colour palette have been selected to act as a subtle backdrop to sophisticated stones, patinated brass inlays as well as carefully selected fabrics and furnishings bringing colour and liveliness into this bright interior.
The entire space is balanced with custom made classic and contemporary furniture pieces, hand-knotted rugs, bespoke soft furnishings and fitted joinery, designed, and developed by the team in collaboration with our best UK craftsmen and artisans. All the pieces are meant to harmoniously inject the client’s own style and personality into this striking space, simultaneously telling a story of the history of the property and the area complimented by the signature Helen Green Design aesthetic. Schemes in every room have been carefully considered and put together to reflect the above, connecting all the elements into a sophisticated and tailored home for the client. HGD worked with their most trusted supplier to achieve this extraordinary space. GMS joinery created the beautiful brass glazed panel featuring throughout the property as well as the main joinery pieces. Their expertise and attention to detail allowed the designers to implement their creative vision without compromise. Together with LANSERRING, HGD developed a one-of-a-kind Kitchen with custom glazed vitrines and convertible workspace, which seamlessly blends in into the elegant semi open interior. The outstanding quality of craftsmanship and materials allowed to turn the design team’s vision to reality. Another special collaboration was with Nulty Bespoke who created the bespoke chandeliers for the Main Entrance and the reception. The Grade II listing on the property’s ceiling prevented the design team from installing any additional lighting such as spotlights, so both HGD and the supplier pushed each other’s technical and creative boundaries to develop unique light features, which are not only beautiful but also practical.
