Selencky Parsons Studio decided to renovate an old house in London in order to receive music students where the low price, privacy and shared spaces were the project’s keywords.
When studying abroad, it can be really difficult to find a place that we can identify which but most importantly it’s very hard to find a place at a good price that is also in good condition. On that note, and to make it possible for students to have a good experience, privacy, and a place with conditions to live, the leaders of the Amar-Franses Foster-Jenkins Trust, British funding that offers scholarships to Arts and Science students wanted and decided to make a difference. They wanted the students to feel at home, even in an expensive city like London. So, they started a new project that aims to offer quality living at a good price.
Bravura House, London
The Bravura House, in London, made in 1920, was the selected home to suffer a renovation in order to accommodate 7 music students. It’s a very comfortable home with natural lights and a garden. The full renovation was made by the design studio Selencky Parsons. But this London renovation project was a real challenge for the architects because there were historical aspects that were important to maintain in order to keep the soul of the home.
On that note, the studio opted to do a harmonious mix of common spaces and private ones. So we have the living room, the kitchen, and the dining room on the ground floor with an underground room that has been made to host annual events or meetings.
The London house has 7 bedrooms, across the top two floors, which one with a private bathroom and a study area.
At the end of this London Home Project, it has been possible to keep the original identity of the bedroom and even create an amazing outdoor space. What do you think of this London Project?
