GET NUMBER 11 DONE: LONDON ARCHITECT SHOWS BORIS JOHNSON HOW A FLAT REFURBISHMENT CAN BE DONE ON TIME AND ON BUDGET

  • Designers show how £30,000 dream home could be kitted out from concept to completion without any John Lewis nightmares
  • Features fit for premier’s lifestyle include soundproof walls, door closers, a zip line and ‘Oven Ready’ kitchen deal

Architect HOKO Design has shown Prime Minister Boris Johnson that £30,000 is more than enough to create a dream Downing Street dwelling.

The talented team at HOKO drafted a mood board for Number 11 Downing Street – packed with a host of high-end practical features to match the demands of private and public life as the nation’s premier.

Stand out features in the design – of course deliverable on time and on budget – include an ‘oven-ready’ kitchen, perfect for delivering on promises of a top-notch dinner; door closers to ensure those important conversations remain private; and a sound proofed walls to ensure neighbours aren’t disturbed at any time day or night.

There is also the option of a zip line next door to Number 10 – but be sure to wear suitable safety equipment.

Danny Campbell, founder at HOKO, a full-service architecture to interior design firm which opened two studios in Westminster and Wandsworth, serving North and South London, earlier this year, said: “The Prime Minister could have saved himself a lot of time and hassle had he come to HOKO.

“As an architect I am always on the lookout for ways to help make the most of space and that of course extends to our nation’s leader.

“Like many in the UK I was shocked at the suggestion £200,000 be needed to refurbish any flat – even in one of London’s most exclusive areas – and we are more than willing to show what is possible for the very generous £30,000 afforded by the people of this nation.

“As with every project, we have carefully taken the personal and professional requirements of the client into consideration, and created a design fit for the lifestyle of the Prime Minister and his family.

“We will of course be able to deliver it on time and on budget, and with all aspects of the project from concept to completion delivered by HOKO and its partners. Mr Johnson will be able to sleep easy in our hands, free from nightmares of any kind.”
