Being established on the principles of wellbeing and craftsmanship, Echlin was founded to provide a multi-disciplinary approach to spatial design and development. In addition to working on their own development projects, they offer architecture, design and project management services to client project commissions. All my work for Echlin has been about showcasing their latest projects for multimedia purposes.
Great Portland Estates plc commissioned Echlin to interior design the largest penthouse in their 2.3 acre residential, commercial and retail masterplan. The development is a pivotal element in the regeneration of the east end of Oxford Street. The design for the penthouse was inspired by the heritage of the local area and the generous connection to nature, as Rathbone Square includes one of the first garden squares to be opened to the public in over 100 years.
Set between two streets in the Norland Conservation area, Kenure House is a rationalisation of a traditional terraced home and two mews buildings that had been crudely linked together. The new residence retains a Victorian facade, with everything behind completely rebuilt, to provide a refined lateral space, respecting traditional proportions but translating them into a contemporary home.
Situated in the Pembridge Conservation area, this Notting Hill house combines classical grandeur with the demands of modern living. Echlin restored the sophisticated frontage and original sash windows. The dwelling is modest and elegant allowing the new building elements to be discernibly concurrent, whilst appearing subservient and respectful to the original house.
