Carlisle Mansions, Westminster

Repeated water damage in this Westminster flat led clients to MAAPS for a full resuscitation of their dwelling. Preserving the best of the building’s late-Victorian original language, while proposing design enhancements, was our urgent task. Furthermore, coordinating amongst the different parties involved – insurer, neighbours, residents’ association, contracting and subcontracting teams – meant that we had to wear multiple hats.

The result is a delightful, open and useable space. We designed a new kitchen with pantry, a more functional laundry room, as well as new bathrooms – one with a re-discovered lightwell window. All floors, walls and ceilings needed updated period replacement. Refined use of uplighting helps to showcase each room, accompanying the owners’ art and other collections. Working in tandem with the owners, we were able to make everything come together as a sophisticated whole.
