We are excited to be part of the ongoing redevelopment of KOKO, a London landmark that has been closed since March 2019 after a huge fire had devastated much of the building.
Over 120 years old, the original Grade 2 listed Camden theatre has hosted iconic acts from The Rolling Stones, Amy Winehouse, Kanye West, Monty Python and even Charlie Chaplin, to name a few.
Rebranded as KOKO in 2004, the most recent owners are looking forward to finally relaunching the £70m renovated space in early 2022 after six years of planning and three years of restoration.
Matthew Blaylock, Commercial Manager at Mumford & Wood, explains;
“We were approached by Make One Group to work on this amazing project, to help breathe some life back into this historic building.
This project is particularly challenging due to the heritage profile requirements combined with the requirement for high acoustic performance.
Through our product development we tested for, and achieved, the required acoustic rating shortly before being chosen as the window manufacturer for this project.
The front elevation of KOKO has single glazed windows & doors with period profiles. The windows had been painted white over the years, but we stained the replacements Teak & Nut to closely match the original architect’s vision.
The side and rear elevations have a series of enhanced acoustic vertical sliding and casements windows, with doors that feature special panel mouldings which match the original designs.
We fitted the windows to the pub, restaurant, library, piano bar, jazz bar, rehearsal rooms & private viewing areas of the main concert hall.
We really enjoy bringing these old buildings back to their former glory, especially where there is so much history and creativity.”
Tucked away in the depths of the Somerset countryside, this former Sunday school has been converted for residential use by the Walker family.
Believed to be 100 years old, the building is on the grounds of a grand, Listed home and as such, is also protected with a Grade II listing. Alongside the former Sunday school, there is also a former workshop, garage and stable block which have also now been converted and restored by the family.
“We saw the opportunity to convert the buildings into a residential space for our family, which we now occasionally let out for holiday guests as well” Mr Walker comments.
With the buildings all protected with a Listed status, an architect was brought on board by the family to assist with planning and submitting the works, and gaining approval from the local conservation authority.
“Both ourselves and the architect researched potential suppliers for our new windows and doors, which was how we initially discovered Mumford & Wood. We were really impressed with what we saw, and thankfully, everyone came to the same conclusion that the Mumford & Wood products would be most suitable for our project” Mr Walker explains.
“The process set out by the conservation authority was very strict, and there were numerous rules we had to follow to ensure our works would be in keeping with, and preserving, both this structure and the main house on the grounds. But we were delighted when we gained approval for our new windows and doors from Mumford & Wood”.
Putty glazed, sympathetically designed flush casement windows and entrance doors in a stylish Green finish were specified for the property. As part of the building was the old stable block, the new doors have been designed with this in mind, with the panels and glass styled to blend in seamlessly with the architecture of the building.
“We were inspired by the colour from looking around at local properties who also have a similar colour scheme for their windows and doors. It seemed the most appropriate colour to go for, to ensure our property fitted in and enhanced the local area.”
“We have been really impressed with Mumford & Wood and love the helpful, customer focussed approach that they adopted the entire way through the process” Mr Walker concludes.
In London, this astonishing, new-build Georgian style home is the result of Mr & Mrs Gibson’s tireless efforts over the past 4 years.
In 2017, they purchased the original house on the plot and demolished it straight away. “We wanted to build a new family home for us and our young children” Mrs Gibson explains.
Mr Gibson is a professional property developer with an impressive portfolio of award winning homes across London, and has always placed a key emphasis on quality for his projects and in his work.
Following an arduous planning process with their architect, spanning 18 months, the Gibsons ensured that their new home was to their exact specifications throughout. The result of their efforts is a truly spectacular home, featuring beautiful ornate detailing and intricate stonework throughout the property further complementing the Georgian era the Gibsons were inspired by.
As a property developer, Mr Gibson knew exactly who to turn to when it came to ordering the new windows and doors for his home. “For timber doors and windows, Mumford and Wood are in a league of their own. The quality of the product is outstanding and their customer service is first class. A visit to the factory shows this is a long established, quality company with expert craftspeople.”
Towering sash windows finished externally in a colour complementary to Farrow & Ball ‘Mouse’s Back’ were installed across the home. French doors in the same colour finish, as well as impressive single entrance doors in a classic ‘Black’ external finish were also specified by the Gibsons.
“There are cheaper products out there and the industry is full of over promising and underdelivery. For me, anytime I want timber windows and doors it is an easy decision; Mumford and Wood every time. Anywhere else is a false economy.”
“Nowhere in the world makes sash windows and casement windows like the UK, and Mumford and Wood are class leaders!” Mr Gibson comments.
The Gibson family have been living in the home for less than 6 months now and are still finishing up in some areas, but to have achieved such an incredible result in a relatively short period of time, really is a testament to the efforts of the Gibsons and all parties involved in this stunning project.
