Belgravia House

This extension to a Grade 1 listed Victorian house in Belgravia reinterprets classical proportion and materials. The design is inspired by the surrounding context of stucco and Portland stone.

A new facade is composed of massive materials that convey weight and permanence. Deep recesses feature book-matched slabs, with honed and sandblasted finishes creating a variety of tactile surfaces.

Materials include terrazzo with slate chips and Italian Ceppo di Gres. Granite setts in the landscaping reference the adjacent cobbled streets.

This deep retrofit aims to meet the Passivhaus EnerPHit standard. The specification includes replacement triple glazed sash windows, MVHR, an airtight layer and natural wood fibre internal insulation. Two electric car charging points are also proposed.
