Project

Kings House, Hove, is a Grade II listed building with uninterrupted sea views, looking out over Hove Lawns and promenade.

Built in the early 1870s, it was originally a terrace of large houses but has now been meticulously refurbished into 69 luxurious one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments and penthouses.

During its time, the building has transformed from residential properties into a hotel, a base for the Royal Navy in WWII, and into commercial offices, but in 2017 developer Mortar Nova Grand Avenue purchased it with the aim of restoring it to its former residential grandeur.

Located within the Avenues Conservation Area, the seven-storey building maintains its Victorian opulence with the original architectural features replicated or reinstated.

Mosaic floors line the hallways, while each apartment retains the original Victorian styled high ceiling, over-sized front doors, architraves and skirting, and large windows that let natural light flood in. The developer has combined these period elements with the features and conveniences expected of modern living, with owners able to personalise kitchen, bathroom and flooring options.

One of the development’s focal points is the Residents’ Lounge, which offers a beautiful and functional communal space to relax, meet friends and family, or to conduct business. Its bold colour scheme sets the tone for the development, with Farrow & Ball Hague Blue and Radicchio Crimson making an opulent statement on the walls and woodwork.

Kings House achieves the developer’s vision of creating properties that provide owners with everything they expect from modern living, combining that contemporary feel with a nod to the building’s lavish past.

Brief

Mortar Nova Grand Avenues tasked Portsmouth-based electrical contractor MR Electrical to source and install electrical wiring accessories that would balance the requirements of the development’s form and function, while adhering to the high-quality finish expected of such prestigious accommodation. The solution should provide accents of the past, while delivering residents the functionality and convenience of a modern solution.

Solution

MR Electrical selected Hamilton's electrical wiring solutions for Kings House, having used the British brand and its comprehensive range for prestige projects in the past.

Hamilton’s Hartland G2 design was chosen for its high quality and contemporary screwless finish. Its highly engineered design means that it is a simple and practical ‘push-to-fit’ solution that is also competitively priced due to streamlined components.

To meld the contemporary design with the period property aesthetic, Hartland G2 switch plates and sockets were used in an Antique Brass finish with black inserts, complementing the brass fixtures used throughout the luxurious development, such as door, cupboard and window furniture, as well as the bathroom fixtures and fittings.

Available in a wide range of configurations – with Grid and EuroFix plates also an option – Hartland G2 2-gang double pole switched sockets were positioned in convenient locations throughout each apartment.
