We are pleased to confirm we have recently started another project for our client Nell Gwynn House.
The proposed scheme is to undertake the external refurbishment of the front, and rear entrance refurbishment works at Nell Gwynn House, Sloane Avenue, London SW3.
Nell Gwynn House is an iconic art-deco serviced apartment block designed in 1936 and built in 1937 by the prolific architect G. Kay Green. Kay Green took his inspiration from the fashionable art movement of this period – Cubism. The “W” shaped design of the building itself reflected the fashion for geometric designs and symmetry.
When Nell Gwynn House opened its doors in Chelsea, it became an iconic landmark that was soon recognizable for its glamour and fashion and because of the bohemian artists who lived there.
Today, Nell Gwynn House provides high-end luxury serviced accommodation in the heart of Chelsea. It is very appealing to guests from across the Globe with its prime and prominent location close to the designer boutiques, restaurants and museums of Kensington, Chelsea and Knightsbridge. Being only 10 minutes away from the West End and the City of London and three stops from Buckingham Palace is another bonus.
The proposed works will include a complete external refurbishment of the front entrance of the building and a significant change in its appearance. It will be the first update and upgrade of the Nell Gwynn House outlook since 2006 when both the interior and exterior of the building were upgraded.
The works comprise groundworks, new stonework/paving, works to the front entrance canopy, new external lighting, external landscaping works, new balustrading, gilding and decorations, a new gate to the rear, and new signage and lantern works.
We are very excited about this project and look forward to working alongside the Contract Administrators Cushman and Wakefield Project Management & Consultancy.
Stay tuned to see more updates as this incredible transformation progress.
