Egerton Crescent

Synopsis

Egerton Crescent is a prestigious address nestled in South Kensington, within the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Built by the iconic property developer James Bonnin in the 1840s, the street was formerly known as Brompton Crescent before being renamed in honour of Lord Francis Egerton, 3rd Duke of Bridgewater.

We were brought in to assist with an interior fit out for one of these distinguished properties, carrying out a supporting role to the client’s interior designer.


The Brief

Due to the nature of this project, named in recent years as the UK’s most expensive street, the current interior designer required expert assistance through various stages.

We were required to produce detailed interior designs with architectural background research for the interior development of the property. Working closely with all parties involved, we carried out a feasibility review of the client’s proposed brief, helping us to produce draft architectural drawings to move the project forward.

Our team needed to coordinate the concept design based around the existing fabric of this terraced building, and finally providing crucial presentation drawings for the client to take forward to planning.

Our Solution

By thoroughly understanding and interpreting the client’s vision, we were able to successfully take the client forward through planning.

Our concept designs fitted comfortably with existing buildings on this period street, helping to give the client’s property a stunning finish suitable for a prime residential address.

By creating workable solutions and visuals for client development, the project ran within the client’s deadlines, allowing each stage to be seamlessly implemented without issue.

I am pleased to have been given the opportunity to comment on the contribution made by Lawray Architects to the recently completed Combined Services Centre in Llandrindod Wells. As lead consultants on a project with three separate stakeholders, their role was always going to be challenging. I was however, very impressed by the professional manner in which they succeeded not only in delivering a quality final product, but also in balancing with skill and patience the competing demands of their three ‘clients ’throughout both the planning and construction phases of the project. From a Dyfed Powys Police perspective, we were very satisfied with the design solutions offered and the ensuing facilities have received complimentary comments from the occupants
