Residential, Listed Buildings and Work in Conservation Area

Doughty House, Richmond

The project involves the transformation of a Grade II listed grand house, gallery wing and Dower House set in one acre of landscaped gardens into a 38,000 sq. ft 10-bedroom residence complete with heritage state rooms and world-class leisure amenities.

The three Storey Doughty House was originally built in 1769 in Portland stone and London brick, located at the crest of Richmond Hill, providing spectacular views of the River Thames.

From the early 1850s, the then owner started collecting priceless paintings and classical sculptures, and by 1876 had over 510 major works. In 1885, to house his art collection, the owner added a two Storey skylit 125-foot-long gallery to the house, inspired by the architecture of the long gallery at Buckingham Palace. By the 1870s the long gallery housed art by famous names including Reubens, Van Dyke, Rembrandt, and Velazquez, with Roman mosaic flooring.

Under the current plans for Doughty House, the main house will be refurbished to provide an eight bedroom mansion with a series of magnificent ground floor state rooms. The grand two storey gallery wing will be converted to provide outstanding entertaining and leisure facilities. The two storey Dower House is being converted to provide guest bedroom suites and living areas, bringing the number of bedrooms within the property to 10 in total.

From the garden façade of the main house a newly built sweeping Palladian style double staircase will lead down to the extensive gardens. The centrepiece will be a reflection pool. extensive mature planting and trees.

Other Listed Buildings

Projects include country houses, office buildings, residences and a care home. These all present challenges when adapting the period fabric of the original building to contemporary use.


New apartment buildings and conversions
Both contemporary and traditional apartment buildings have been designed. Care is taken to adopt a style that complements the existing street scene. On prominent corner sites, such as the Causeway in Teddington, a more striking contemporary design often works well, and provides an interesting addition to the local architecture.

Mixed Use
The Royal Oak Site, Teddington, features a replacement Public House, apartments and houses.

Urban Infill
Thameswick House is a contemporary design infill building opposite Hampton Wick Station, with a retail / office use at ground floor and apartments above.
