The refurbishment of 15 North Audley Street, in the heart of Mayfair, for the Grosvenor Estate to provide five new high specification apartments has been successfully completed.

The project involved the conversion, remodelling and extension of redundant office space on the upper levels of a 19th century building to create new contemporary residential units. The scheme included the infill of the underdeveloped side extension, the construction of a new mansard, additions to the rear extensions, and new external roof terraces and green roof space. 

A backland site within a conservation area in Clapham which, prior to redevelopment consisted of a dilapidated cottage and lock-up garages, was last used as a car repair business.

A development for Amhola Ltd., Wardell Mews comprises one three bed and three five bed houses, of two and three storeys including the lower ground floor, with driveway access from Hannington Road.

Moxley Architects were commissioned to undertake a strategic planning study and programme of works for the Lansdowne private members club in Mayfair. The club’s Masterplanning Committee had put forward a number of potential projects that our commission was to consider.

The projects ranged from the relaying of the York stone courtyard and restoration of the Grade II* listed art deco swimming pool ceiling below, the provision of new squash courts, a dance studio, cardio and weights gyms, new and refurbished male and female changing facilities, internal decorations and external floodlighting and the provision of further members’ bedrooms.

The practice has since completed the design and construction of the majority of the projects listed above and further works for bedrooms are planned in the near future.

A project for The Grosvenor Estate, in the Mayfair Conservation Area, was the renovation of a Victorian property to provide one and two bedroom luxurious managed short let apartments. This ‘Aparthotel’ is part of the GoNative.com brand of serviced apartments.

As part of The Grosvenor Estate’s ongoing refurbishment and improvement works within the Mayfair Conservation Area in Westminster, a number of apartments in their 19th Century mansion block properties in Green Street have been remodelled to provide contemporary two bedroom residential units.

In the Highgate Conservation Area, this project was the restoration and conversion to apartments of a 1916 listed building, originally built for housing the female staff of Prudential Assurance.

Through consultation with Conservation Officers and English Heritage planning was secured for 15 residential units. The scheme includes the addition of a penthouse, infills to the U-shaped floor plates at first, second and third floors as well as two new basement levels. The lower level is for parking and the upper one for leisure facilities including a pool, sauna, steam room and gym.

Substantial improvements were made to the external facades through the removal of two external metal staircases and existing services.

The somewhat dilapidated grounds were fully restored to provide both private and communal landscaped gardens.

Work started on site in late 2013 and was completed in the summer of 2016.

This Grade 2* listed building has several superb interiors as well as extensive landscaped and protected gardens.

Restoration and development option studies looked at the potential of turning the property into apartments, a boutique hotel or its restoration as a single residence.

As part of these studies we explored the possibility of an element of enabling development based on English Heritage’s guidelines for the conservation of ‘significant places’. For the EH ‘enabling work’ option we considered providing residential units to the rear of the site to finance the restoration of the main house.

6 – 10 Cambridge Terrace and 1 – 2 Chester Gate are Grade 1 and 2 listed Nash properties overlooking Regent’s Park.

Originally in commercial use, our commission was to propose options for the restoration and conversion to three houses, the largest of which is 39,000sq.ft. The proposals also provide new basement parking and leisure facilities.

The proposals also involved masterplanning and use studies for areas adjacent to the site for the Crown.

Planning and listed building consents were granted in 2010.
