‘Forming part of the Chelsea Barracks development in West London, a new, ‘hidden’ mews house has just been unveiled, courtesy of a collaboration between architects William Smalley and Ben Pentreath. The structure, tucked away behind Garrison Square, sits right at the site’s heart, next to a restaurant and the public plaza; yet its clever design means it’s also discreet and quiet – its door only recognisable to those who know of its existence. This house, in fact, has no obvious facades at all.
The comfortable home was expertly designed into a relatively awkwardly shaped, triangular plan; yet this doesn’t stop it from having generous, open plan living spaces, as well as ample outdoors areas, including planted gardens, patios and terrace space. Everything is concealed behind a gated courtyard entrance.’ (Wallpaper*Magazine, 2020)
