Nestled in the heart of Knightsbridge is a reconfigured mixed-use mews designed for fashion boutique Egg. The refurbishment comprises a new pied-à-terre and a much-needed expansion of back-of-house facilities for the adjacent shop.

Within the existing mews building, every effort was made to reduce unnecessary waste. Original wooden floorboards were treated and restored, while internal partitions are comprised of soft and granular chipboard; often discarded as a by-product during construction. This modest material has been elevated into beautiful, bespoke joinery that wraps around a pocket kitchen, bathroom and walk in wardrobe.

Inspired by the essentialism and pared-back minimalism of the Egg brand, we have inserted a series of containers within the first floor of the building to compartmentalise domestic and commercial functions. These boxes stack within the pitched eaves of the roof and ascend to a nest-like canopy. Inverted light cowels illuminate the space. The ground floor is defined by a bespoke wooden bath supplied by Studio Anna van der Lei, set within a wet room that theatrically opens to the street and doubles as a showroom for the Egg team.
