This Belgravia home sets a benchmark for the sustainable retrofit of listed buildings

The daunting challenge to create a fully eco friendly home in a building that’s already listed, located in a conservation area of central London, was never going to be easy. But th2designs attempted exactly that recently when they were asked by Grosvenor Estates to furnish this conversion.

The house which was divided into three apartments became the first listed building in the entire country to achieve BREEAM’s (Building Research Established Environmental Assessment Method) outstanding certification for sustainable design.

One aspect of the project which aided its eco friendly status was the local sourcing that was employed when scouring for craftsmen and pieces to furnish the apartments. th2designs have managed to come up with a beautiful and considered interior, ensuring everything used in the home was ethically sourced and sustainable.

Beautiful upholstery in a wool which was woven by Scottish Mills, and curtains and blinds made with natural fabrics, have been used throughout the space. Even the artworks were created in the UK, and framed nearby in London.

th2designs believes that the apartment sets a benchmark for the sustainable retrofit of listed buildings in the UK, while at the same time preserving the historic significance of the urban fabric of the building.
