THIS UNIQUE PROJECT MARKS THE REVIVAL OF A HISTORIC CHAPEL IN CHELSEA.
With innovative designs and crafted interiors, these prestigious Tenhurst townhouses offer an engaging combination of history and contemporary luxury living.
THE KING’S CHAPEL IS THE WORK OF VICTORIAN ARCHITECT EDWARD BLORE, BEST KNOWN FOR HIS CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE DESIGN OF BUCKINGHAM PALACE.
Originally designed to serve as the Chapel of the College of St Mark, the building, commissioned by Derwent Coleridge, the son of the poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge, was completed in 1841.
In the 1920s a merger of two educational institutions created The College of St Mark and St John, of which the Chapel remained a part.
TENHURST’S REVIVAL PROVIDES A SENSITIVE RESTORATION OF THE CHAPEL, CREATING TWO CONTEMPORARY HOUSES.
The architectural approach – pioneered by Shard Architects – lightly touches the original shell of the Chapel, with the two houses – crafted internally by Thorp Design – floating gently within the restored outline of the original building.
