Comprehensive refurbishment and remodelling of 98 upper luxury serviced apartments at the Cheval Gloucester Park Residences in Knightsbridge.
The project comprised the extensive hard refurbishment throughout this early 90’s building to improve the flow and functions of the extensive but inefficient back of house spaces and facilities. As well lead architect we undertook the interior design strategy to upgrade and maintain the high quality luxury offer in line with the Cheval brand and this re-positioned offer.
The remodelling of the ground floor and basement enabled the creation of a Cinema Room and larger Gym as well as feature ‘Library’ lounge spaces in the east and west wings for guests to meet and relax in, providing a sense of ‘home from home’, separated from the main circulation corridors.
By the relocation of the majority of the back of house facilities to the basement, extension of the lifts and new service entry, this created a major increase in the servicing efficiency of the building.
The apartments were stripped back to shell with all services upgraded, including new lighting schemes and AV systems to the three penthouse apartments on the top 3 levels of the building.
The façade of the 12-storey building was also refreshed with new fenestration throughout and enhancements to the balconies. A new welcoming main entrance lobby, together with the external refurbishment of the driveway, hardscaping and lighting, completed the overall reinvention of the property.
Innovations & Added Value
Rethinking the spatial organisation of all the back of house functions with the excavation and extension of the lifts to serve the basement level, plus addition of a new service entry point and goods lift located to adjacent shared service bay area, allowed us to relocate and provide discreet operational areas creating a more generous reception and front of house experience at ground floor level, the ambience of which was carried through into the apartment levels above.
