Concrete Minimalism in Kensington

This private house in Kensington is located off Brompton Road in the Brompton Square Conservation Area and was designed by David Chipperfield. The house occupies the former site of a Victorian house and features a single storey annex and garage. The project achieved planning permission in 2009 following several months of consultation with the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea’s planning committee, the Architectural Advisory Panel, and English Heritage. The visible concrete has been colored to match the bricks and has an exposed aggregate finish. All exterior door and window frames are generous in size and made of bronze. The main materials inside include travertine floors, oak doors and fittings, and polished plaster walls.
