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 has been a partner of the Corporation of the Church House for over 20 years and in that time has been heavily involved in several large refurbishment projects. The team’s knowledge and skills have proved invaluable in the areas of design, planning and project administration. When redeveloping a listed property, Lawray have ensured that they treat the architecture with sympathy whilst producing space that is effective for modern day requirements. Lawray continues to work closely with our in-house team on forthcoming projects and we would have no hesitation in recommending their work to others.
