Chelsea House

Scenario Architecture were tasked to maintain a home’s historic integrity while updating it for contemporary living at this Chelsea house in London, England.

  • area / size 1,830 sqft
  • Year 2019
  • Type House,
  • Situated in a quiet residential street, this five-storey house in Chelsea required a complete renovation – and the addition of a new underground gym. The challenge we faced with our design was maintaining the existing ceiling heights while incorporating a gym with views around the property – and still obtaining planning approval for the scheme.

    Our design integrates all these ambitious additions within the building’s historic fabric to provide a contemporary living environment. The open-plan ground floor functions as the hub of the house. Extending the kitchen and dining area further into the rear garden provides adequate space for large gatherings with a direct relationship to the garden.
