Strip and EnerPHit refurb of G2 listed home with new art gallery


BÜF Architecture

Contract Value

Circa £1.4M

Project Description

We are in the early stages of a total strip-out and refurbishment of an 1800s terraced house on a prestigious street in Central London close to Tottenham Court road, Holborn, Russell Square and Brunswick Gardens. The clients are seeking to future-proof their home by going the extra mile and building to the Passivhaus EnerPHit standard. In addition to their refurb we will be constructing a new art gallery to the rear of the building. This will be a fully glazed construction with a green roof and a basement floor below.

Bow Tie Construction were selected for the project due to our experience delivering Passivhaus design on a Bloomsbury home of the same form that received coverage in the Evening Standard. Our track record of delivering complex and challenging deep retrofits while being sensitive to budget requirements made us the most suitable contractor for the job. The renders and drawings shown are courtesy of BÜF Architects. Concept MVHR design was produced in-house by Bow Tie Construction.

  • After 5 years of living here we are moving to the country and it breaks my heart to leave the beautiful house that you created for us.  I wanted to say thanks again for the beautiful work that you did on our building - it’s been amazing to live in and you guys did a first class job. Would always recommend you if someone asked for an excellent contractor.

  • “Bow Tie Construction were very professional, they did things to a very high standard and paid a lot of attention to detail. When small issues were flagged here or there they were always keen to investigate and fix them.”

  • “We’re expecting a dramatic reduction in costs. We now know how much energy we’ve used (in March) and we rarely have the heating on compared to this time last year in our old house.”

  • Your guys did a very good job on the [window] installation, nice and precise and the assemblies fitted perfectly....Very good silicon application too, with a nice 5mm joint. So please do thank them on behalf of Cristina and myself. We are very pleased.
