The De Havilland Building is a 1930s factory that was used to manufacture aircraft parts. It was designed by Sir Owen Williams, one of Britain’s foremost architects of the period. The sensitive restoration by Hollybrook has ensured the building remains an outstanding example of Art Deco architecture.
The unit our client purchased as a shell required careful planning as the existing concrete ribs across the ceiling did not allow for a straight forward mezzanine structure.
The result of the refurbishment was so positively received that the client turned her interior styling skills, into a business, “Miller Ritchie”. She also rents out the property for film and photo shoots.
