Hudson & Mercer, in collaboration with PDP LDN and Knight Harwood, have successfully completed a boutique collection of ten luxury apartments, set within Grade II* Listed buildings in the heart of Covent Garden.
The design team were responsible for the concept design for all key elements of the interiors, including bespoke kitchens, bathrooms and joinery for each of the unique apartments. A number of valuable and listed internal features were successfully integrated into a fresh and contemporary re-interpretation of these 18th Century townhouses.
Hudson & Mercer have been chosen by Native Land and their partners as one of a handful of select design practices asked to design showcase apartments at their prestigious Holland Park Villas scheme.
The ultra exclusive development, located in the upper reaches of Campden Hill and overlooking Holland Park is due for completion in the Spring of 2017.
More to follow shortly…
Hudson & Mercer have recently completed the fit-out and furnishing of the canal-side marketing suite for the latest phase of Argents King’s Cross development. The provision of 145 apartments ‘within’ the Grade II listed Victorian gasholders is one of London’s most eagerly awaited residential projects.
In November 2014, Hudson & Mercer won the commission to furnish the bespoke marketing suite which includes a three bedroom apartment and sits on the edge of the Regent’s Canal. They were also commissioned to generate concept designs for a selection of areas within the completed buildings, including the lobby, business lounge, private dining suite, screening room and spa. The ‘Gasholders’ complete in 2017.
Hudson & Mercer have completed the furnishing of this south facing duplex penthouse at award-winning NEO Bankside. The 320 sqm apartment occupies the tenth and eleventh floors of Pavilion D. The designers have embellished the strong, defined form of the Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners architecture, with a mixture of highly textural but structured furnishing. The resulting space retains its impressive sense of volume and light, whilst offering the softness and sensuality of a luxurious home. The apartment is further enhanced by a varied and extensive collection of artworks, objects and planting.
Hudson & Mercer have been chosen by leading architectural 3D visualisation firm V1 to design and fit out studio and office space at the Grade II listed St John’s School building in Chester.
The building is owned by The Grosvenor Estate and is currently undergoing a complete renovation, due for completion in March.
We are delighted that NEO Bankside has been awarded an RIBA Award for Architectural Excellence, we offer our congratulations to Graham Stirk, Alasdair Nicholls and their teams at Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and Native Land respectively.
We are fortunate to work with many of London’s most discerning and progressive developers, we know how much investment and importance the likes of Native Land, Grosvenor, Argent and Capital & Counties give to exemplary design, so it is satisfying to see that their efforts are vindicated and regularly acknowledged by those from within the industry and beyond.
Somewhat more considered than the typical estate agent circular and something far less likely to go directly to recycling, the Summer 15 edition of Domus Life is on its way to the doorsteps of West London’s most discerning addresses. It is always well written and edited, this issue is inspired by Europe, celebrating it’s architecture, design, culture, spaces and people. The magazine also features an interesting piece on Hudson & Mercer Founder & Managing Director, Sam Chapman.
Hudson & Mercer are currently preparing for the completion of a twenty-third floor, three bedroom apartment at The Eagle and will commence the remodelling of the apartment over the summer months.
Located in the fashionable Old Street district, the landmark tower forms a key part of the Farrells designed, mixed-use, regeneration project and is inspired by the retained Eagle House, a 1933, Art Deco building at the heart of the scheme. A cluster of studio workshops, cafes and restaurants will populate the ground floor.
Hudson & Mercer has been commissioned by King’s Cross Central Partnership to develop the interiors for a new pavilion on the former Filling Station site on the banks of The Regent’s Canal.
The space will incorporate a marketing gallery for the sale of apartments within Gasholders, as well as a three bedroom showcase apartment and meeting rooms.
The two-storey building, designed by Wilkinson Eyre Architects is scheduled to complete at the end of the year.
We are delighted to announce that Hudson & Mercer has been selected as interior designer for the communal areas within Gasholders, the apartment buildings inside a ‘siamese’ triplet frame, at King’s Cross. Hudson & Mercer will work alongside Wilkinson Eyre Architects on the reception lobby, club suite, screening room and spa.
The integration of new buildings within the footprint of the landmark structures is arguably the most complex and ambitious of the multiple-phase development at Kings Cross, the project will see the reconditioned, original cast-iron framework erected around a series of apartment pavilions.
Our thanks and appreciation to Paulo Prall and the team at Case & Stilli, in particular photographer Gianni Franchellucci, for the twelve page feature on our Cheyne Terrace apartment, in the November issue.
Hudson & Mercer have been retained by Capital & Counties as the interior designer for 26-27 Southampton Street, the latest building on the Covent Garden Estate to be converted to premium apartments. Following our successful collaboration on Wardrobe Place, our design team will again join forces with architects, Paul Davis & Partners.
27 Southampton Street was previously the home of David Garrick, the actor, playwright and producer who managed the Drury Lane Theatre from 1747 – 1776 and lends his name to several theatres worldwide, as well as The Garrick Club.
A busy Autumn/Winter awaits for the studio with numerous and diverse projects in the pipeline, including:
- Family homes in Chelsea, Chamonix and Bogota
- Re-modelling a pied-a-terre on the edge of The City
- Architectural design for luxury residential schemes in Bayswater, Notting Hill and Edinburgh
- Interior concept design for mixed-use development projects in London and the Middle East
There will be much more to follow on each of these projects as they progress so, in the meantime, watch this space!
Hudson & Mercer have completed the installation of the show apartment at Cheyne Terrace, Chelsea on behalf of developers Native Land and Grosvenor.
The apartment is being used to promote the release of the final few apartments in the highly successful scheme. Hudson & Mercer have been involved with the interior design for the development from inception and Managing Director, Sam Chapman is delighted with the final result: “For so long, these projects exist only ‘on-screen’, so it is always rewarding to see the completed apartments, particularly when you have been involved in so many aspects of the design. All credit to our client, they have identified their audience and given us a well considered and clear brief from the start.”
Wardrobe Place takes it’s name from the site which from the 1360′s was occupied by the Royal Wardrobe, housed in the former mansion of Sir John Beauchamp and located in a part of the City destroyed in the Great Fire in 1666.
The buildings on the site were rebuilt and Wardrobe Place today is an elegant cobbled courtyard surrounded by Grade II listed buildings and a more recent apartment building.
Hudson & Mercer have been commissioned by owner, British Land to provide the space planning and interior design concept for ninety private apartments and a Grade II* listed house, to be completed in 2016. We are collaborating with Paul Davis + Partners who are the executive architects for the project.
Hudson & Mercer have moved to a new studio and gallery in Lots Road, Chelsea.
Lots Road is at the epicentre of London’s interior design industry and synonymous with design. The close proximity of Chelsea Harbour Design Centre and many of our regular suppliers is a key reason for relocating from the West End.
A feature of the new studio will be the gallery space which will be used to exhibit the work of a wide variety of artists, photographers and furniture makers with whom we regularly collaborate.
