Grade 2* Listed Mansion House Redevelopment, 33 Portland Place & Weymouth Mews, London W1
Redevelopment of a Grade 2* Listed Terrace Mansion House. This property is one of Londons most famous houses, having been used for many Film and Photographic locations such as the Oscar winning film ‘The Kings Speech’, Any Winehouse’s ‘Rehab’ Video and the BBC’s performance of ‘La Traviata’ to name but a few. The photos below are of the existing building prior to the works starting.
The original building, completed in 1776, was designed by the famous Architect brothers James and Robert Adam and has since been remodelled a number of times, particularly during the Victorian Era. We achieved a superb Planning & Listed Building Consent with significant alterations, multiple extensions and much restoration works including roof extensions to both the main building (contemporary structure with jewel shaped openable glass roof) and the mews house, a basement extension including a swimming pool, extensive remodelling and modernisation of the existing interiors, addition of a passenger lift. Securing the consents involved tough negotiations with Westminster Council. Ultimately the completed scheme will provide 22,000sqft of accommodation between the main house, extensions and the mews house. Currently under construction.
