Architecture and famous listed buildings
St John’s Wood is a highly sought after and exclusive borough of London. The area is distinguished by its ‘villa’ housing and mansions as opposed to the terraced housing that was prevalent in the rest of London up to the nineteenth century. It may lack the glitz and glamour of similarly upmarket areas, but it’s still one of the most prestigious areas of London and St John’s Wood interior designers delight in their work in the calm and leafy neighbourhood.
Beatles fans will be pleased to hear that the Abbey Road Studio where the fab four recorded their famous Abbey Road album is in close proximity, as well as the zebra crossing that featured on the album’s cover. Sir Paul McCartney also lives in the area.
Is St John’s Wood close to museums and exhibitions?
There are plentiful things to see and do in St John’s Wood. Lord’s Cricket Ground is nearby as well as The MCC Library containing the world’s largest and most comprehensive collection of books and publications dedicated to cricket.
There is also a fantastic open-air theatre to enjoy. It is a very family-friendly area with both the Sherlock Holmes museum and the world-famous London Zoo in close proximity.
What are the restaurants and nightlife like in St John’s Wood?
St John’s Wood boasts an array of popular pubs. Gastro pubs that cannot be missed include the Duke of York and the Ordnance Arms, which offer a wide array of drinks and fantastic menus. The New Inn is a dog-friendly gastro-pub, refurbished by St John’s Wood interior designers in 2011.
St John’s Wood is also the home of Oslo Court restaurant, located within the unlikely location of the Oslo Court block of flats, designed by architect Robert Atkinson in the late 1930’s. And for those looking for the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing breakfast, lunch or coffee, Fego Caffe is a very popular choice and a great place to grab an all-day brunch.
Our Previous Projects in St John’s Wood
The architecture of the area is as diverse as it is beautiful. Callender Howorth is delighted to have recently transformed an apartment within a stunning redbrick Belsize Park mansion. Our St John’s Wood interior designers completely renovated the property from something tired and dilapidated into a luxurious family home. We implemented an eclectic look with artistic Indian influences that reflected our clients’ style and heritage blended into the light and modern interior. Key to the success of the project was pushing the boundaries of the Victorian interior architecture whilst remaining true to its original charm and features.
