Set in the middle of Knightsbridge, London, this property is a true escape from the surrounding British world. Spanning 2,400 square feet, it is spread over three floors for maximum comfort. This residential project is the latest from the architectural firm Echlin.
Located in Knightsbridge, London, and designed by Echlin’s three-story design studio, the home reinterprets a centuries-old property with a new twist, a specialty of Mews designs that are traditionally identical row houses tucked behind large mansions in exclusive neighborhoods. It restores the conservative style to new glory and a minimal luxury approach, along with a creative strategy of transitioning to a modern getaway with an overall layout. To embody a warm and cozy effect, varied metallic and heritage tones infuse subtle reminders of the historic and upscale location. Riddled with cleverly separated sitting areas, several alcoves and nooks and crannies, its inhabitants can hide well while remaining connected. Clean, linear forms and generous light are blended with comfortable, private spaces to create a sense of escape. Openings, sliding or sliding doors and millwork dividers ensure flexibility and transition. Multiple small zones serve distinct functions while providing an atmosphere of unity and community. Wood reinforces the natural feel, which is consistent with the residence’s proximity to Hyde Park. The abundance of natural light, coupled with a soothing yet strong material palette, establishes and reinforces this close connection to the green surroundings. Echlin’s unique approach results in a home that maximizes the best qualities of design.
