What do you do when you have an historically designated building and can't disturb the walls and ceiling? Hogarth Architects designed it like a piece of furniture "to provide all the functions required by a man about town" on Queen's Gate Terrace in South Kensington, London.

"The space is located on the first floor of a listed building," explains project architect Hamish Herford in Dezeen. "The fire surround and cornice, by law, had to remain."

Herford adds: "The existing space was divided into three rooms with a false ceiling while the new design aims to restore the space back to its original proportions, which would have been as one room."
