Old Church Street

Scott Brownrigg

Designed by Scott Brownrigg, Old Church Street consists of two new contemporary townhouses and four new apartments on the site of the original Chelsea porcelain factory. Developed closely with the client Martin’s Properties, the scheme makes use of redeveloped back-land and repurposes an existing commercial building in the heart of Chelsea.

Two townhouses are arranged around a central glazed courtyard to introduce light, space and privacy on the narrow, urban site. A modern interpretation of a traditional Chelsea townhouse, their design is contemporary and light, with clean lines and form complemented by high quality materials. Scott Brownrigg’s contemporary interior design concept and fit out is complemented with luxurious furnishings and home styling by designer Andrew Martins. Four, two bed two-bathroom apartments and a remodelled retail unit sit behind a retained, and meticulously restored facade overlooking Old Church Street. Each apartment boasts an entire floor to itself, with restored period features contrasting contemporary interiors. The development provides thermally efficient and cost effective homes to live in and run. Green roofs and soft landscaping enhances the quiet, Mews style setting and encourages biodiversity to site. Old Church Street has provided the opportunity to reinstate and celebrate special features typical of this Conservation Area while transforming a hidden site into new and highly desirable residential property. Transforming the retail unit at ground level provides an opportunity to contribute to the boutique retail and food offering in Chelsea.
