Tree-lined Avenue Road in St Johns Wood is typified by large villas set in generous gardens. Hub designed a replacement villa with a grand Georgian style exterior offset by a modern luxurious interior. As well as a full width reception room overlooking the garden, the client wanted a large family living room in the lower ground floor. We sited a large patio space adjacent to this room to flood this level with light, and provide a direct connection with the garden. The brief also included a swimming pool, Jacuzzi, steam room and cinema.
