A wonderful residential interior architectural design development completed by Katharine Pooley introducing “The Clarence at St James House, London”.
It’s proximity to royalty makes St. James’s House truly unique. One of the most important addresses in London, it overlooks St. James’s Palace, is a stone’s throw to Buckingham Palace, and with direct views of the main entrance to Pall Mall. It is a landmark Grade II* listed building and Katharine Pooley and her team of designers and interior architects were called on to create an interior befitting the impeccable architecture while staying true to its faultless heritage. The final design has a quintessentially English feel updated to reflect the requirements of the international global elite. Katharine’s brief was to transform the magnificent building to an elegant residence and return it back from the dilapidated office building it had become to its original splendour. This was an incredibly detailed and laborious process as so much of the fabric of the building was of national importance. The project has taken 5 years to complete. The use of exquisite marble, bespoke furnishings, hand painted wallpapers and fine joinery have been used to compliment the restored existing listed features such as fireplaces, mouldings, staircases and wall panelling and have resulted in an immaculate and ground breaking finished interior.
