This exceptional house in Old Westminsteris a Grade I listed building and forms part of an exceptional group of Queen Anne houses (1700-1704). Notable early residents during the eighteenth century were the Duke of Beaufort and Admiral Vernon.
We undertook repairs, restoration and additions to this fine London house with its exceptional original staircase and timber panelled interiors.
‘‘Working on Grade I Listed Buildings requires exceptional attention to detail and a high level of craftmanship.’’
46 QUEEN ANNE’S GATE, WESTMINSTER
Working with historic buildings requires a thorough knowledge of traditional building techniques in order to ensure that repairs and alterations respect the original design and construction ethos and facilitate sensitive modern interventions that respect historic fabric of the original building.
‘‘It’s a very rewarding experience to work on exceptional historic buildings, especially those on the National Heritage List for England.’’
There is a lot of wear and tear in a building that is over 300 years old and with that an accumulated charm that is hard to reproduce in a new building. There is also much to learn from these truly sustainable building materials and techniques. Happily we still have bricks, lime mortar and well-seasoned timber in abundance so its not impossible to work with an old building in a complimentary manner, respecting its integrity, character and charm to ensure the building is in fine fettle to weather a few more centuries.
