Old Meets New

Located in the historic St John’s Wood Conservation Area, works at this property on Marlborough placed included the complete renovation and enlargement of a substantial Grade II Listed property.

Knowles delivered the project from concept to completion with works including a new 250 sq/m basement which featured a swimming pool, spa, sauna gym, as well as additional accommodation and a wine cellar.


The properties historic features from the original house were sympathetically restored, with a conscious decision to use traditional materials in the newly added basement to ensure a seamless with the rest of the house. Natural light was gained in the basement through the design of roof lights and light wells which aided in removing the feeling of being underground.
