Knox Bhavan — Brownstones, Elmwood Road

We recently completed an exterior project on Elmwood Road, which gave us another opportunity to enviously eyeball the Knox Bhavan Brownstones nearby. 

The project has been shortlisted for the RIBA London Award 2015, and Eleanor Young has written about it here.

Previously the site of some unprepossessing 1950s maisonettes, “the front elevation is a contemporary reworking of the Edwardian street typology.” (That typology can be seen here.)

I was lucky enough to take a look inside one of the houses in September 2014, during Open House London. The standard of the materials and finish throughout is of the highest standard — if the chance to look inside either of the buildings rolls around again, take it.
