Having recognised the potential of this most desirable Chelsea address, Wilben won planning consent to demolish the existing house and replace it with an imaginatively conceived, modern new-build property that maximises light and flow through clever manipulation of external and internal architecture. While the original footprint was relatively modest, this has been cleverly extended by both digging into the basement and extending onto the roof, maximising the spatial opportunity. The pale woods, monochromatic scheme and light-flooded rooms elevate a previously ubiquitous house into one that is both highly individual and highly sought after.
