Hyde Park Remodelling


Significant alterations to this Hyde Park Victorian Mews house. Materially, robust, raw and contrasting materials were used, in respect of neighbouring properties.

The Brief

Alterations include the construction of an entirely new frontage with brickwork and elements of historic detailing and craftsmanship layered onto a new steel framed structure.

Extending through excavation they created enough additional accommodation to offer a large kitchen/reception/dining room/living room with study area and bespoke dining table, a media room, a gym, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, storage at every level and a generous utility room and garage, while presenting an impeccably built façade sympathetic to the surroundings.


The layout of the house has been vastly improved to maximise the drama of the spaces.

The clean modern details are complimented using natural materials to create a calm contemporary and sophisticated aesthetic, and one that is entirely functional as a contemporary family home.

Combining old and new

Modern design works with important features such as making the most of natural light, and having comfortable, functional spaces that flow into each other, creating a home that is easy to live in.

More traditional designs often break the spaces up into smaller units, reflecting the way life was lived in earlier times. It is possible to blend the two styles together harmoniously, both inside and out.

Gregory Phillips have produced many award-winning projects for both architecture and interior design.

Where appropriate they can include a new landscaping design to complement a new build—whether that is an entire house or an extension.

By looking at the project holistically—both the fabric of the building and the interior fittings and décor—they are able to create a design that matches the requirements of the owners while knitting the old and new aspects of the building closely together.
