This bathroom previously had four layers of tiles on both the walls & floor!!!! We asked Eyre Interiors to design the bathroom, which is in keeping with the period of the building. The room also feels larger, having now removed 250kg of tiles!!! @firedearthuk @porterbathroom @farrowandball @lethbridge_lines_joinery #artdeco #kensington @nels_eyreinteriors #lethbridgelondonltd #tiles #bathroom #houzz #renovation #building #design #magazine @tomstaubynphotography

Steels required for this new Lethbridge London Ltd project in Chelsea. Steve has put in the temporary works to enable the permanent works to be built. During & after the second world war this small area of Chelsea was knocked about in order to create social housing. Thankfully some of the older stock remains around the corner!! #steel #temporaryworks #building #chelsea #secondworldwar #lethbridgelondonltd #structuralengineering #projectmanagement

It's always a fun change to have an article dumped on your desk, rather than an invoice!!! Lethbridge London Ltd's latest Kensington project has been featured as a case study on how to renovate a period property sympathetically, while being practical with today's demanding lifestyle. #federationmasterbuilders #kensington #photoshoot #casestudy #lethbridgelondonltd #@tomstaubynphotography #artdeco #london #building #decorating #paintingdecoratingassociation

Part of the recently finished Kensington project carried out by Lethbridge London Ltd. A dated & uncomfortable shower room has been transformed into something a little more fun & usable. We asked @nels_eyreinteriors to carry out the design, which they did brilliantly. Part of the License to Alter stipulated new shower trays had to have a lead lining!!! #shower #design #building #eyreinteriors #kensington #lead #lethbridgelondonltd #decoration #houzz #renovation #project #@tomstaubynphotography

Senior Project Manager Steve, watching over the first RSJ's going into a Lethbridge London project in Chelsea. These RSJ's are necessary to keep the structure of the property sound. They also keep everyone nice and strong!!! #steve #strongman #rsj #chelsea #building #lethbridgelondonltd #organised #scaffold #houzz #construction #architecture

Lethbridge London Ltd has just completed a 6 month Kensington project, which included the strip out, design & installation of this kitchen. Working with the confines of oddly placed concrete lintels, within a 1930's concrete structured building, meant the design stage was crucial. The reconfigured, handmade, designer kitchen now has room for a breakfast bar and much more storage space. #lethbridgelinesltd #building #kitchen #artdeco #concrete #houzz #lethbridgelondonltd #kensington #marbleworktop #storage #tiles #joinery #handmadekitchen #@farrowandball

Lethbridge London Ltd has worked periodically at The Art Workers' Guild, Bloomsbury for the past 4 years. Working for Ben Pentreath, Adam Architecture as well as the guild itself, it has been hugely enjoyable to help preserve the historic fabric of this well known Georgian building. The guilds principle of 'learning by doing' has helped save countless traditional skills that would otherwise have been permanently lost. What a great relief it was on first entering to find the interior intact!!! It's worrying that it is deemed sufficient to keep the facades of our ancient buildings, whilst ripping out their historic insides. #artworkersguild #georgian #bloomsbury #SPAB #restoration #lethbridgelondonltd #architecture #artsandcrafts #traditionalskills #london

Lethbridge London Ltd has its day in court!! We were asked by our friends, 'Compass Archaeology', to help transport their finds away from the huge construction site that was once, 'Bow Street Magistrates Court'. Compass undertake desktop & standing building assessments, watching briefs & excavations. This is an essential part of the building industry. This site was occupied in Saxon times. Mainly animal bones were found, but six intact human burials were also unearthed. The building became the most famous magistrates court in the country during its 266 year existence and saw the creation of the 'Bow Street Runner's'. #Archaeology #building #police #bowstreetrunners #volkswagen #lethbridgelondonltd #coventgarden #saxon #london #bones #history

Lethbridge London Ltd was asked to design & build an extension to turn a very small shower room into a much larger family bathroom in this Chelsea townhouse. The name Chelsea originates from the Old English term for 'Landing Place' and Lethbridge London has landed on this same street for a fourth time!! Derek is just finishing off the block work. #building #buildingextension #bathroom #morespace #lethbridgelondonltd #chelsea #builders #blockwork

Lethbridge London Ltd was asked by Lamb Property to remove the main supporting wall & chimney on the lower ground floor of this Victorian house, in order to maximise space. This permanent structural steel frame was required to support the upper levels. Prior to the removal of the internal structure, a forest of temporary propping to the upper floors was required to transfer loads from the purpose built spine wall. 1.4 tonnes of steel was installed & 10 tonnes of debris removed by hand!! #rsj #building #structuralengineering #lambproperty #lethbridgelondonltd #victorianhouse #steelframe #battersea #tonnage

Senior Project Manager Steve, organising just some of the steel going into a project in Battersea. Lethbridge London is carrying out the structural work on behalf of Lamb Property. Architects have been using iron for structural purposes as far back as the 1700's. Structural steel erection was a crucial factor in the construction of the world's first skyscrapers. #steel #structural #building #lethbridgelondonltd #lambproperty #battersea #projectmanager #houzz

The beginning of the end!! A large Kensington project is in the final stages. The parquet flooring, bathroom & kitchen floor tiles are almost complete. Due to an outdated clause in the license to alter, we have had to design & install a lead shower 'undertray' to sit underneath the shower tray!! Lead was used by the Ancient Romans for making water pipes & lining baths. A plumber takes his name from the Latin word, plumbum, meaning lead. Once completed this project will feature on the Lethbridge London Website. #houzz #lethbridgelondonltd #lead #showertray #kensington #building #lethbridgelines #renovation #parquet #tiling #eyreinteriors #interiordesign

Lethbridge London Ltd, Tubs & Tugs!! This fun bathroom is part of a much larger project finished before Christmas in St George's Square, Westminster. We were tickled pink by 'The Tubby Tub Short Roll Top Bath'. The rest of the project will be featured on our website very soon. Thomas Cubitt oversaw the building of St George's Square in 1839. It was highly desirable, as up until 1874, it had its own pier for boats & steamers!! #bath #lethbridgelondonltd #westminster #boats #steamers #thomascubitt #stgeorge #builders #tiles

The Painting & Decorating Association have awarded the coveted Christmas front cover to Lethbridge London Ltd for the Acton project carried out earlier this year. Designed by the talented @oliviaoliveemery and photographed by brilliant @tomstaubynphotography, @lethbridgelondonltd only had to carry out the building & decorating. More projects recently completed will be added to www.houzz.co.uk & www.lethbridgelondon.co.uk early in the New Year!! #frontcover #oliviaemery #tomstaubynphotography #building #decorating #christmasedition #prizeproject #acton #royalwarrant #lethbridgelondonltd #interiordesign

Lethbridge London Ltd decorated this renovated art studio to create a blank canvas for the incoming artist. I particularly like the newly created, secret penguin shelf. Chelsea has been a favourite amongst artists since the times of Dante Rossetti and thankfully this is being kept as a studio. In March 1967 this was the photo location for The Beatles, 'Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band' album cover!! #chelseaartist #artstudio #decoration #lethbridgelondonltd #penguinbooks #beatles #sgtpepper #spiralstairs #floorsanding #rossetti #tradition

Lethbridge London had the pleasure to work alongside Jess Lavers Design to transform a deteriorated two bed apartment into a luxurious contemporary home in the heart of Marylebone. Part of the project included a full strip out, structural alterations, new bathrooms, a new kitchen and fine joinery. In the 18th Century, the area was known for the raffish entertainments in Marylebone Gardens, which included bear baiting and bare-knuckle boxing by members of both sexes!! #refurbishment #jesslavers #interiordesign #lethbridgelondonltd #joinery #marylebone #marble #renovation #projectmanagement #lethbridgelinesjoinery #jamesbalson

Entente Cordiale. French engineering student, Thibaut, came to Lethbridge London from Eurovia France for 10 weeks to experience the day to day running of a small English building & decorating company. Thibaut became a great asset to the team and covered all aspects of a well functioning company. He now has ambitions of setting up Lethbridge Paris after his exams!! #ententecordiale #france #london #student #lethbridgelondonltd #construction #decorating #paris #buildingsite #projectmanager #design #houseextension #restoration

Lethbridge London carried out a full front & rear exterior renovation to this wonderful townhouse on Holland Street, Kensington (middle house). The owners to the left & right have both asked for estimates having seen the quality of the workmanship. This tiny pocket of London is steeped in history and this particular area once formed part of The Holland Estate, bought in 1768 by Henry Fox, the first Baron Holland, from William Edwardes, who was later created Baron Kensington. #exteriorrenovation #windowrefurbish #brickwork #georgianarchitecture #kensington #lethbridgelondonltd #decorating #joinery #limemortar #scaffolding
