Chelsea House is a project designed by Scenario Architecture in 2019, covers an area of 370 m2 and is located in London, United Kingdom. Photography by Matthew Clayton.
Situated in a quiet residential street, this five-storey house in Chelsea required a complete renovation – and the addition of a new underground gym. The challenge we faced with our design was maintaining the existing ceiling heights while incorporating a gym with views around the property – and still obtaining planning approval for the scheme.
Our design integrates all these ambitious additions within the building’s historic fabric to provide a contemporary living environment. The open-plan ground floor functions as the hub of the house. Extending the kitchen and dining area further into the rear garden provides adequate space for large gatherings with a direct relationship to the garden.
