Architecture and famous listed buildings in Primrose Hill
Located on the northern side of Regent’s park and surrounded by the affluent areas of St John’s Wood to the west and Swiss cottage to the north-west, Primrose Hill has always been a popular area of London. Its village vibe and tranquil atmosphere have attracted an array of artists and intellectuals who have influenced Primrose Hill interior design. The architecture mainly consists of Victorian terraced houses, which have been converted into flats. Chalcot Square (once home to poets Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath) and Chalcot Crescent are popular addresses and can be distinguished by their pastel-hued houses.
Is Primrose Hill close to museums and exhibitions?
As well as Primrose Hill itself, with its fantastic views over London, the area is right next to Regent’s Park and London Zoo. London Zoo is the world’s oldest scientific zoo and is fantastically located on the northern edge of the park within walking distance of Primrose Hill and both Camden Town and Regent’s Park stations. It makes for a perfect family day out.
Restaurants, nightlife and things to do in Primrose Hill
The area is packed with boutique shops and restaurants; this is the place to discover independent shops and businesses rather than big stores. There is no shortage of great pubs in Primrose Hill, and The Lansdowne and The Engineer are both on Gloucester Avenue and serve good food. These pubs range from traditional to gastropub, but all feature outstanding Primrose Hill interior design. Nearby on the way to Belsize Park, The Roebuck, The Sir Richard Steele pub and The Washington are also great choices. The family-run Greek restaurant Lemonia is a perennial favourite with locals and it’s usually busy so make sure you reserve a table. Those who need a sugar fix should head to the Primrose Bakery for cupcakes in retro-style surroundings.
What have we designed in Primrose Hill?
We recently completed a project near Regent’s Park, which was designed by pioneering architect Richard Paxton. It’s no exaggeration to say it’s one of our most ambitious projects to date and the result is an awe-inspiring state-of-the-art ‘intelligent’ house. Tucked behind a secluded mews in Primrose Hill, the frosted glass exterior gives only a small clue to the amazing technology and decor within its walls. Our Primrose Hill interior design team have created a jaw-droppingly beautiful space filled with light and the centrepiece of a swimming pool that runs the length of the living space. A huge glass roof panel opens up to reveal the sky, making this a truly unique living space.
Why do you want to live in Primrose Hill? What famous people live there?
Primrose Hill is very popular with celebrities, particularly those with children since it has such fantastic green spaces in the vicinity. Many are also attracted to its historical association with literary figures and intellectuals, as well as its bohemian atmosphere, which has influenced Primrose Hill interior design. Jude Law, Tim Burton and Daniel Craig all live in the area. It has good transport connections into other parts of London via Chalk Farm and Camden tube stations. There’s a fantastic selection of schools, such as Primrose Hill Primary School which has an Ofsted rating of 1 (outstanding) and Haverstock secondary school which is rated 2 (good).
