Tedworth Square

Kensington & Chelsea, London


This basement flat in Tedworth Square is a very good example of Woodman & Blounts ability to manage an entire product from structural work, through to electrical, plumbing, fit-out and final decoration. The flat, in a basement position, very dark and enclosed. The brief was, through a thoughtful and high quality refurbishment to create a more spacious, light and airy living space.


2 bedroom basement flat within Victorian terraced mansion block.

Project Details

All existing internal walls were demolished with the internal spaces rearranged to create more welcoming entrance and living areas.

The main spine wall of the building had to be removed to allow for radical development. This was carefully supported and new structural steel was installed.

To comply with building regulations the ceiling was removed and insulation installed in the ceiling void to cover both acoustic and fire regulations.

Specified in the project was the reopening of traditional fireplaces. This involved lining and testing chimneys before fire and surrounds could be installed.

As a basement flat being with concrete floors the pipe work supplies for water, heating and gas were routed through ducts cut into floor slabs. The ducts have removable lids to allow for maintenance.

The existing windows were restored and secondary glazing was installed.

A complete central heating system was installed and a new drainage system to accommodate new bathrooms.

New gas supplies were fitted to the gas fire, kitchen and heating system. High quality fixture and fittings and sanitaryware were installed.

A completely new electrical system was intalled including main fuse board, circuits and wiring, lighting system  and fire alarm system.

New solid core, oak veneered doors comply with modern fire regulations. Selected doors have attractive large clear glass inserts to allow more light entrance and to create space
