As the year draws to a close, the Projects Team at RFR, comprised of a talented group of project managers, architects and interior designers, reflect on the year gone by and the homes we have created as well as those projects being driven to completion in time for our clients to enjoy their first Christmas there.

Our client faced a challenge. A recent change had pulled her from beautiful rural surrounds to a rather tired and lacklustre apartment in a purpose-built block in South West London. We had to give the apartment a Cinderella-level transformation and support her through the whole complex process.

By ensuring the project scope, licence to alter process and construction programme and budget were well planned and managed from start to finish, our client was able to focus on the part of the project she enjoyed: the creative journey witnessing the transformation of the space with its crisp modern palette, thoughtful lighting design, bespoke furniture and joinery and rich upholstery.

The End Is Nigh

In June this year, and having worked meticulously to implement a complex planning strategy with RBKC, our Projects Team were pleased to get works off the ground on a prestigious Grade II listed house in Holland Park for one of our international clients.

Wishing to avoid disruption to her family’s life as much as possible, our client had a strict vision that the full works – including a mansard extension, double height conservatory replacement and full cosmetic refurbishment – had to be completed in 6 months. Oh, and just in time for Christmas!

The project is on course and the beautiful design scheme created by our designers is finally coming to fruition. It is set to be a busy end to the year to get the clients happily in their home and the turkey on the table! Finished photos to follow next year. In the meantime, here is a snapshot of us raising the roof!
