Roupell Street

 

Refurbishment of Grade II listed house

Roupell Street Conservation Area
Waterloo, London

 

 

The approach for this refurbishment and interior design project was to reveal and strengthen the atmospheric qualities of the Georgian worker's house with its small rear garden and 1980s conservatory infill and kitchen extension, which were to be retained. The aim was to both revive the original features of the house and to re-shape and interpret the subsequent interventions through adding bespoke joinery elements that respond to existing constraints. This created a unique light-filled space where the occupants, both writers, can work, entertain and relax.

 

The brief comprised an overarching concept for the whole house, including new lighting and bespoke joinery for kitchen, bath and bedroom. Grey plasterboard wall finishes, carpet flooring and cluttered bathroom and kitchen designs were removed, and the original timber paneling and floor boards exposed. New white finished joinery cupboards and window seating blend with original white walls and timber detailing.
