Sonsino Turcan Construction

Pont Street

This project involved the amalgamation of two separate flats on the top floors of an Edwardian mansion block in central Chelsea into one duplex apartment arranged around a central lightwell. During the construction the client purchased the loft space above the living room which allowed the ceiling to be raised to create a double height living room that reinstates two small high level windows and creates a dramatic space that was perfect for a feature pendant light.

A new bespoke, folded metal stair connects the two levels and oak hallway panelling evokes the feeling of a stately home. The project involved production of a lot of bespoke joinery including a custom made fitted day bed within the first floor study space, accessed from the hallway by a pocket sliding door, and hidden storage beneath the new stair.

Finishes throughout the flat are of the highest quality and the palette of materials is intentionally kept simple and elegant.
