York House

Oh York House by Patrick Lewis Architects, HOW I LOVE THEE!!!York House is an imposing mansion block on Upper Montagu Street in Marylebone, Central London. Our client purchased a large 2nd floor apartment, which had not been refurbished for over 45 years. Significant structural works were undertaken to produce an elegant apartment, which suited contemporary living requirements. Bedrooms were converted into ensuite bathrooms in a considerate manner without marginalizing the purity of the plan. Lastly, the living space was combined and the kitchen was moved away from the dark internal lightwell and relocated at the front of the property enjoying wonderful light and views. The palette was developed during visits to reclamation yards throughout Oxfordshire and London and the majority of materials where sourced from them. The strip flooring was reclaimed from the BBC in White City, Encaustic handmade tiles from Tuscany, Georgian Shutters from Oxford. We designed the kitchen to be an eclectic mix of different element from the French Armoire, to the concrete worktop, to industrial ductwork all made by local crafts people.

Didn't Woody Allen use this building for Match Point? Looks like the building in which Scarlett Johansson"s character had her apartment?

Beautiful. Please explain how in one photo the kitchen worktop around the sink is concrete, in another it is made of wood.
