Harcourt House was a palatial residence built in 1722 by Thomas Archer and is listed as a Grade II building. It is the centerpiece to the west side of Cavendish Square. Originally divided into luxurious apartments for Lord Harcourt I, today, it contains 25 apartments with a medical facility on the ground floor.
Refurbishment of existing building began in 2016. It included alterations to the rear, installation of services at new basement level, removal of roof plant and erection of roof extension at main roof level in connection with 25 residential apartments. Balconies from third to sixth-floor level to the rear with terraces and plant located within an acoustic enclosure at lower ground floor level and other minor external alterations to the front façade.
Architects, Darling Associates, contracted Construct Media to provide several architectural visualizations for the project. We provided 10 verified views, 1 blended photo merge and re-touch and 15 interiors, using 3dsmax, V-ray, and Photoshop.
We were provided with the outline and given the freedom to choose the furnishing, mood, and feel of the luxurious apartments. We attempted to honor the heritage of the building as well as provide a new modern aesthetic.
