Iceberg House is a prime example of a rebirth of a residential Victorian property featured on France 2 20heures.
Located in the Boltons Conservation area in Chelsea, South-West London, the building dates back to the 1870’s and was originally a four-storey terraced house. Our original brief at EMR Architecture was to transform this imposing family home into a larger, more practical space for a family life but also including a ‘centre-piece’ of design in the property.
We have not only challenged ourselves on the overall vision, but we have worked hard on designing every detail considering the aesthetic and practicality. We encountered several design challenges, from concealing rainwater drainage, to the practicality of keeping a space dry underneath the rear garden, complex glazing details, including installation using a crane over the building on a very tight residential street!
Constantly working on bringing light into the habitable spaces, personalised spatial design to the clients’ needs, high quality of materials and intense project management has permitted to deliver on time and on budget this Iceberg house of 320 sqm floor area and over 15m height!
