Compact London Flat Gets Adorable, Modern Update

The flat is on the first floor of an old Victorian

This compact, first-floor flat in a Victorian in Westbourne Gardens, London was recently updated with contemporary—and adorable—details for a children’s heart surgeon who splits her time between London, Leeds, and Egypt.

The one-bedroom flat measures just 45 square meters, or 484 square feet, and was originally divided into three narrow strips of space. British firm Nimtim Architects took on the task of redesigning and opening up the residence to compliment the client’s lifestyle. The architects Tim O'Callaghan and Nimi Attanayake accomplished this by redefining the apartment’s layout into a small kitchen with pastel blue cabinetry and adjoining lounge area, a stone and marble bathroom beside it, and a bedroom with built-in cherry-wood veneer wardrobes.

Other details include chevron oak wood floors, gold-colored accents, a hidden door between the kitchen and the bathroom, and clerestory windows that allow sunlight to enter from the kitchen side all the way through to the bedroom. The renovation cost £100,000. Have a look around.
