FRANCIS GARDNER STUDIOS
Remodelling and refurbishment of 69 Studio apartments in West Hampstead, London
Extensive layout adjustments to convert the existing cluster flats into studios, with a full refurbishment throughout, including addition of on-site cinema, a games room and a gym
The scope of Estilo Interiors’ work at Francis Gardner Studios was comprehensive and multifaceted. The 69 studios underwent substantial layout adjustments to enhance functionality and aesthetics. Beyond the studios, we undertook the refurbishment of communal areas, including the cinema, games room, and gym, to create vibrant, modern spaces that cater to the diverse needs of residents.
Key Highlights of the Project:
1. Bathroom Layout Re-Design: The existing bathroom layouts underwent a meticulous reworking to optimise space and functionality. Our team, with an eye for detail, ensured that each studio’s bathroom was not only aesthetically pleasing but also ergonomically designed for maximum comfort.
2. External Envelope Repairs: Estilo Interiors addressed miscellaneous external envelope repairs, ensuring the building’s structural integrity. Additionally, we undertook the refurbishment and re-decoration of existing external windows and doors, enhancing the overall visual appeal of Francis Gardner Studios.
3. Kitchen and Kitchenette Installations: New kitchens and kitchenettes were installed, featuring modern designs and state-of-the-art appliances. The focus was on creating efficient and stylish culinary spaces that met the evolving lifestyle preferences of the residents.
4. En-Suite Installations: The project involved the installation of new en-suites, complete with contemporary sanitary ware and finishes. Our team paid attention to every detail, ensuring that these private spaces reflected a harmonious blend of functionality and luxury.
5. Finishes and Decorations: Estilo Interiors implemented a fresh palette of finishes and decorations throughout the studios and communal areas. This cohesive design approach created a seamless transition between spaces, fostering a sense of unity and modernity.
6. Building Service Installations Overhaul: A significant undertaking involved the overhaul of building service installations throughout the property. This comprehensive upgrade ensured that the studios and communal spaces were equipped with cutting-edge technology, enhancing overall efficiency and sustainability.
7. Access Control Upgrade: In response to modern security needs, our team executed an upgrade of access control systems. This not only bolstered the safety of residents but also aligned with contemporary standards of secure living.
8. Staircase Extension: Alterations to the existing staircase were implemented to extend it up to the 4th floor, enhancing accessibility and convenience for residents. This thoughtful modification added both functional and aesthetic value to the building.
