Combing two neighbouring flats into a family home

Our client returned to London and purchased the flat next door with a plan to recreate the lateral living they had become used to abroad. We were instructed to combine two neighbouring ground floor 2 bedroom flats into a family home.

We began by extensively propping the internal party wall, carefully demolished it and secured it using a heavy steel frame.

The incoming utilities were consolidated and upgraded to suit a single dwelling

The floors were lowered with a new slab and screed installed with underfloor heating.

The entire property was rewired, replumbed and redecorated.

“As the Interior Designer rather than the owner of the property I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Ross on a complicated refurbishment and building project in Fulham recently. It was a highly unusual and awkward apartment which involved the replacement of a dilapidated three storey glazed structure. Ross was very knowledgable, had a wonderful and constant cool approach, was excellent at problem solving and full of practical advice. I always felt that we were approaching the project from the same angle and as a strong team. The end result was very successful and the client very happy. We are now in the process of working on another project together.”

Removing the party wall allowed the properties to become double width and it felt natural for the property.

“An exciting opportunity to create a double width property for clients missing lateral living”

Ross Malone, Bloom

The result is a Kitchen which is double the width of the average property and with the soundproofing put into the ceilings and party walls, it feels like a purpose built flat and feels right as a double fronter.

The children’s bedroom is a highlight for us with the climbing wall built into the chimney breast.


We understand the huge investment clients make in time and money and that is why we work closely with them from start to finish to ensure that we get it right.
