Sixteen impressive flats have been launched behind the splendid original façade of an Art Deco cinema in Queensway, Bayswater. New architectural elements at the scheme, called Queens, include a “Bauhaus-style” extension clad in glazed terracotta panels.
Shops at street level will improve an unloved corner, while a reconfigured traffic system will create a new public space at the junction with Westbourne Grove.
“It is a building of exceptional design and quality — a boutique block with the feel of a private members club,” says Richard Bernstone of estate agent Aston Chase. Prices from £895,000 to £3.65 million. Call 020 7724 4724.
