Chelsea Townhouse, London

Project - Chelsea Townhouse

Location - London

Product Used - HW2004 Alsace (Bath)

Designer - Nancy Gouldstone Architects

This luxurious townhouse in the beautiful London borough of Chelsea has recently been renovated to create a spacious, contemporary and environmentally conscious home. 

In order to maximise the available natural light, a large extension was added to the rear of the property and the first-floor terrace was extended to create a completely new configuration with a bright, airy and more open feel.

The design concept was to create a home that was simple but sculptural, bold but in a subtle and understated way. To achieve this, a pared-back, clean, minimalist palette was chosen for the interior scheme with tactile materials that added comfort as well as a level of softness to the space. 

Havwoods was selected to provide a comprehensive wood flooring solution that would align with the desired aesthetic and contribute to a seamless flow throughout the interior. Bath Rustic in a herringbone design was chosen for its natural, light colouring and beautiful texture and grain.

As the property needed to be suitable for renting, the wood floor had to be robust and able to look its best for many years to come, the lacquered finish of the Bath herringbone block provides stain resistance but in a more subtle way. From a sustainable point of view, the timber is FSC certified and therefore met the design criteria for an environmentally conscious home.
