BEAUFORT MEWS, MARBLE HILL, TWICKENHAM
Client Guiness Mahon & Co., and Berkeley Homes
A scheme of seventeen town houses and seven flats for Guiness Mahon and Co., developed by Berkeley Homes. Guiness Mahon acquired the site with a planning consent for office use in a saturated market, and a local Planning Authority opposed to residential use. Following a carefully prepared design, and many local consultations, the scheme, contrary to the officer's recommendation for refusal, was granted consent. The location of this site facing Marble Hill, a Grade I listed building, was critical to the design. The scale, proportion and materials are traditional, with contemporary detailing.
