RAISING THE BAR

Portobello Road, W11

A sensational property with a modern industrialist design, refurbished by CUBIC Studios and furnished by House to Hold. The bold concept ripped through the entire period fabric of a terraced building on the Portobello Road.

“We demolished everything behind the  front façade,” said CUBIC, “and rebuilt four floors from the ground up, where three previously existed.”

The property subsequently presented an extraordinarily individual and muscular-designed maisonette balancing superb living spaces with generous bedrooms and bathrooms.

Set on the ground and lower ground floor of a Victorian townhouse, it included a living space, kitchen, two bedrooms and two bathrooms.

With no shortage of concrete, iron and copper on display, the home exuded a solid industrial veneer mixed with softer natural tones from engineered-wood flooring. An abundance of natural light came from an impressive lightwell, and a living green wall.

The unrivalled location was on the North Kensington stretch of Portobello Road, on the doorstep of Golborne Road and its cool hangouts.
