Two storeys above and below ground
St John's Wood, London | Dyer Grimes Architects
Specific elements of the build
The challenge on this project was the deep excavation work necessary to create the two storey accommodation below ground. In particular, we were careful to ensure we didn’t disturb the neighbours or unsettle their properties.
A glass and steel staircase runs throughout the building, giving access to each level. The top floors contain five bedroom and living rooms for family, guests and live-in staff. The lower ground floors and basement provide an open plan kitchen, dining and recreation areas. The latter includes a swimming pool, sauna room, gym, and art and wine stores.
