Chester Square in Belgravia, with its famous white stucco terraces, overlooking a large expanse of private gardens, is one of the most highly regarded, and priced, locations in London. Atkey and Company created bespoke Victorian joinery for the refurbishment of an iconic mid-19th Century Victorian property in Chester Square.
Almost all of the properties in this exclusive prime property location in Westminster are Grade II listed. The Grosvenor Estate which manages the square maintains these features which allude to its high status and present a consistently elegant outward appearance. Details including Doric columns, panelled doors, architrave and decorative balconies.
Victorian Period Doors
Atkey and Company created bespoke joinery for a sensitive refurbishment of one such residence, providing doors, skirting, and wood panelling in keeping with the original period style. Solid timber four panel doors, and both single and pairs of doors of a style typical of the mid-Victorian period, were created. The doors featured raised and fielded door panelling for the main reception rooms and flat panel doors for lower order rooms.
The internal doors were embellished with Victorian door moulding (VDM0006) and a Victorian door moulding (CDM0319). Original mouldings remaining in the property informed the design and creation of additional bespoke door and skirting mouldings.
Atkey and Co’s 1850’s skirting design (VSK0153) was used alongside timber panelling to create a consistently elegant style thoughout the property. In all Atkey supplied some 42 fire rated doors, 300 metres of skirting and 300 metres of architrave all of which which were reinstated over six floors.
