Alteration to existing property, Within a Conservation Area


Francesco Pierazzi Architects

Francesco Pierazzi Architects , 76 Mineral Street , LONDON , SE18 1QR , United Kingdom

FPA were approached to complete the modernisation of a large terrace townhouse in Pimlico that the clients had partially refurbished and extended using traditional idioms. The traditional Georgian cellular layout of the property has inspired the blueprint of the refurbishment. The extensive use of a streamlined contemporary vocabulary is chosen over a faux vernacular. FPA have approached the design as a series of self-contained spaces, each with bespoke features functional to the specific use of each room. They are conceived as stand-alone pieces that use a contemporary reinterpretation of the orthodox architectural lexicon and that work with the building, rather than against it. The use of elementary geometries is complemented by precious materials and finishes that contribute to an overall feeling of understated luxury.
