High Street Kensington

CLIENT: Aberdeen Standard Investment
VALUE: £3.8m
DATE: November 2021

Scope of Works

Refurbishment and conversion of a Victorian building located on Kensington High Street providing four apartments and one penthouse and a new build four storey mews house within the confines of the site.

The scheme involved the complete demolition of the building’s dilapidated interior and erection of a new modern structure behind a retained facade. The centrepiece of the scheme being a modern winter garden feature and retractable roof light.

Outline of the services delivered:

The project involved a complex temporary works scheme to facilitate the demolition of the building while keeping the front and side façade in place. The rear of the property was fully demolished to enable lowering of the ground slab creating a habitable basement.

Once demolition of the existing building was completed. The installation of the new structure commenced with a new steel fram, SFS with brick cladding and a zinc standing seam roof.


The project was logistically challenging as the works took place on High Street Kensington which is a busy main shopping street in zone 1 of Central London. All materials had to be hoisted via lifting beam from the front of the building and safely installed. A ‘Just in time’ approach had to be taken to ensure the floor plates are not overloaded and the teams have sufficient areas to work.

Delivering Quality

Quinn London worked closely with our supply chain partners to ensure a high quality finish to the luxury apartments and mews house. Architectural features such as exposed masonry walls were left displayed throughout the finished project, with the aim of creating a subtle connection to the buildings history.

The building has been carefully restored by both maintaining the existing facade and creating a modern internal environment. The external courtyard and roof top areas provide much needed outside spaces in a congested Central London location.
