Since 2016 Stanesby Architecture has been involved with the renovation and extension of a Grade II private house in Kensington.

The house, originally design by Philip Webb, comprises of five apartments and a detached mews house.

The proposal seeks to renovate the interior of the property and demolish the later 20th Century coach house to build new accommodation, which is both sensitive to the importance of the existing building and creates a more harmonious relationship with its context.

The concept for the new build elements is derived from extensively researching Webb's own design principles and approach to additions and extension to both his own and other buildings. The scheme therefore uses fine contemporary brick detailing and hand crafted materials, to link the new building with the main house and the arts and crafts ethos of its construction.
