100 Bayswater Road is an 1820s villa that went on to become the home of JM Barrie whilst he was writing Peter Pan. The house had been occupied by the same family for eighty years, when its new owners approached GQA to oversee a sensitive repair and upgrade of the house.

    The house has been little altered since Barrie's time, retaining many of its Edwardian features. The only major alteration was the addition of a Brutalist extension by Alison & Peter Smithson in the 1950s.

    Working with a team including interior designers, lighting designers and garden designers, we have brought the house into the 21st century, whilst also conserving Regency fireplaces, Edwardian ironmongery and even a 1950s bathtub!
