Bathurst Street, W2

House Refurbishment, London

The house refurbishment site is located on Bathurst Street between Westbourne Street and Sussex Gardens. The building has a carriage way access to Bathurst Mews which is still regularly used by horses from the Hyde Park Stables. Access to the residential apartments is via an entrance opposite the stables with a stair leading to two apartments at first and second floor respectively. A restaurant is located at ground floor and basement levels with access from Bathurst Street and service access into Bathurst Mews.

The site is located in the Bayswater Conservation Area and is Grade II listed. The building dates from the mid-19th Century originally used as a public house; a use it has retained to present day in the form of a restaurant.

The alterations have created a new mezzanine above the top floor carefully retaining the existing original timber roof trusses with new skylights fitted between lighting the living area below. A new mansard provides head room to the rear to create a new master bedroom, dressing room and ensuite bathroom. The mezzanine is visually linked to the living space with a new glazed wall.
