St. John’s Wood
DYER GRIMES ARCHITECT
Galower Build were commissioned as the builders of choice to re-create a brand-new family home in St. John’s Wood, close to the famous Abbey Road Crossing. The build involved demolishing their existing property and building a traditional red brick home by adding two storeys below ground to give more accommodation, work and recreational space.
SPECIFIC ELEMENTS OF THE BUILD
The challenge on this project was to meet the high demands from clients, neighbours and architects to ensure that the deep excavation work was done without disruption to the neighbours’ properties.
A glass and steel staircase runs through all six floors giving access to the accommodation, work, rest and recreation areas. The top floors accommodate five bedroom and living rooms for family, guests and live-in staff. The lower, basement and ground floors provide an open plan kitchen, dining and TV room with recreational and respite areas including swimming pool, sauna room, gym and art and wine store.
