Full internal refurbishment with new Roof Terrace and bespoke metal staircase.

Planning approval was granted for a rare roof terrace on this quaint Chelsea street.

The interior refurbishment included design and delivery of a compact, three flight, folded metal staircase leading up to the new roof terrace through an openable rooflight. The slim metal profile of the staircase teamed with simple square metal spindles allowed maximum light to drop through the stairwell.

The tight site conditions demanded that we design the staircase precisely and we collaborated closely with our metalworker, refining and honing the proposal to ensure the finished product slotted seamlessly into the house.
