'Redesign of Services for Knightsbridge Townhouse'

Pressures of central London living means that every last square metre of space is literally at a premium, and this is often not recognized in flat conversions from previous eras.

Where a large property has been divided up the plumbing can become quite complicated, inefficient, and a maintenance nightmare for today’s tenants.

 

Key features

  • Redesign of building services in occupied building
  • Design for access and future maintenance

At this property Inkpen Downie, surveyed and produced drawings of the existing services before coming up with a space saving strategy for their re-routing and management.

As the building is listed it wasn't quite as simple as replacing the pipes. A listed building application had to be made for which a Design and Access Statement and Heritage Statement were required before the strategy could be implemented.
