Holland Street




A basement flat brought brilliantly to light

Bought as an investment, this two-bedroom basement flat in Holland Street, Kensington, had been left untouched by builders since 1970.

Dark, gloomy, but brimming with potential, we sought to start afresh, and bring the property back into the light…




In order to work from an entirely blank canvas, the project began with a complete gutting out and total reconfiguration of the flat’s layout.


Starting over from bare brick, we transformed the space with marble bathrooms, a contemporary kitchen and designer storage solutions, incorporating elegant, luxurious fixtures and fittings into the new open-plan living area, including a stunning feature fireplace.


With more natural light now flooding through the flat, and a series of smart lighting solutions added throughout, it’s an apartment that can finally step out of the shade.
