DJA have collaborated with Cooper and Withycombe, A. E. Robb, Louisa Penn Interiors and Press & Starkey to refurbish the top floor at Syon House, Brentford. This historic house was built in the 1500s, with grand and eclectic interiors by Robert Adam added during the 1760s - the so-called ‘Adam style’ is said to have begun at Syon.

The team were commissioned to replan a wing of the top floor for the private and commercial use of Northumberland Estates. A key feature of the design was to bridge the levels between the lower rooms and upper storey while conserving the historic fabric and structure of the building. DJA produced numerous sketches, drawings and models throughout the design process to ensure that a new mid level stair provided a fitting entrance to the private apartments, retaining the historic character of the building.
