2 Princes Gate Mews

Project Description 

Alterations and extension of existing two storey Mews property to create a three storey  property including a new Mansard roof which required a full scaffold with a tin lid. 


John-Paul Murphy is an Engineer and the Director of PCDS Limited who provides engineering and design services all over London. 

Over the years the practice has worked on over 16 Mews properties and carried out a large number of basement schemes in and around the London area, Mansard roof extensions and major refurbishment works.

PCDS are a multi-disciplinary practice and are able to provide both architectural and structural engineering / project management services in house ensuring seamless coordination of the build package.



Design Inspirations

Works were complicated by development works to the adjoining Mews house which included the rebuilding of the adjacent property and construction of a basement during the construction phase. 

Project Notes and Timeline

This Mews is unusual as it is located in a Mews Cul De Sac behind the Victoria and Albert Museum. 

Works commenced in 2010 and were completed in 2014.   

Technological appraisal and Review 

The Design uses traditional materials, matching windows and brickwork in the front elevation, but concedes considerably increased internal volume above the original Mews area.
