Egerton Crescent


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.

Lawray Architects are an affable bunch of people, easy to work with yet still very professional. That’s especially useful for clients who aren’t used to the everyday business of design, contractors and tenders. They approach the job and client as you would like to think you would do yourself with anyone working in unfamiliar territory.
