Retrouvious scoops planning for Tim Burton house overhaul

Architectural salvage and design company Retrouvious has landed planning permission to revamp the home of acclaimed film director Tim Burton in London

On Thursday last week (22 September) Camden Council’s development control committee gave the green light to the scheme which creates a raised link between Burton’s house and his girlfriend Helena Bonham Carter’s home next door.

The scheme involves the ‘substantial demolition’ and ‘remodelling’ of the Belsize property.  A cupola on the nineteenth century muse house will also be replaced with a quirkier alternative.

The couple are well-known for living in separate houses however it is understood an adjoining wall was modified to link the houses some time ago. Their children and a nanny occupy a third and connected property.

Retrouvious declined to comment.
