Located on a prominent corner site opposite the Brompton Cemetery in the Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, Edwardes House delivers 11 new residential apartments with a large retail unit at ground floor level. Arranged over four floors, the homes vary in size, providing comfortable studio flats as well as a spacious two-bedroom penthouse apartment.
The handsome facade of Edwardes House complements the surrounding shops and residences common to Old Brompton Road, constructed of traditional brick and natural stone. The architects were conscious that as a new development, Edwardes House should integrate with the regeneration currently underway in nearby Earls Court.
Internally the apartments utilise a simple palette of carefully chosen materials. High performance timber sash windows allow natural light to flood the space and provide a tranquil environment in this busy, central location. Each home achieves Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4 and follows the Lifetime Homes Design Criteria.
