Chelsea Embankment, Chelsea SW3

Client profile and brief

International young expat couple based in Hong Kong was looking for an assistance to fully refurbish and furnish their un-modernized 3bedroom 2bathroom investment property in Central London. The flat having been rented out for several years was looking quite tired and as they were planning to return back to London as they started a family they wanted to have contemporary and functional home.

Scope of work

We defined, developed and agreed a client brief.  Along with established London based architectural practice we re-designed the layout, created comprehensive schedule of works and ran a competitive bid process to appoint a contractor and interior design team. As our client was based overseas we obtained planning permissions and approvals and managed the project from A to Z including daily quality management of works on site, co-ordination of multiple suppliers and tradesmen, legal and budget management and surveys. We further managed and executed the purchase of share of freehold that further boosted the attractiveness of the property.

Outcome

The project was completed within six months according to the budget and the property was transformed into a brand new luminous high specifications home. With right space and light planning property felt larger than it was at the same time giving privacy to each family member.
