Sneak Preview of Our Secret

Take a peek at London Architect Extension Architecture’s blue chip spa design, Our Secret in Westbourne Grove. In June 2017 we prepared designs for this exciting change of use application from A1 Retail to Sui Generis (Leisure) for spa treatments.

Project Trail

Our client had been a successful tennis pro, so naturally he chose a business that was health-related. Also he is from Northern Europe, where some spa treatments tend to be very specialized. He called Extension Architecture for planning drawings for his change of use application, then also instructed our interior design service and branding package.

We prepared several options for him and so the images shown here denote his preferred design route. His application has now recommended for approval by the planning officer. Our designers were also advised to make a minor alteration to the design, and that has been done. Therefore the application is currently pending approval with Westminster Planning Department.
