DOS Architects have completed an intriguing renovation of the top two floors of Westbourne Grove Church, a 1853 Baptist chapel located in London’s Notting Hill.
Description by DOS Architects: “This was a very special project, where our clients wanted to create a space of openness and transparency, combining their desire for cutting-edge technology with a love of clean, luxurious designs, while respecting the traditional Gothic details of this iconic Notting Hill building, located at the very heart of this pulsating neighbourhood. The entire apartment is centred around a large double-height, light-filled space framed by spectacular arched windows, perfectly encapsulating the views beyond. Our clients wanted interiors and design features to highlight, and not compete with the beauty of the church. In this way, the cantilevered glass staircase and glass-walled master bathroom are perfectly set-off against the Gothic arched windows. The new lay-out adds space and natural light to the entire home, while allowing for a seamless balance between areas to entertain in and those which remain private throughout this spectacular penthouse.”
