Simpson draws up loggia-free designs for Kensington Palace

Royal Historic Palaces (RHP) has asked John Simpson to rework controversial plans for a £12 million revamp of Kensington Palace

Kensington and Chelsea council granted planning permission for the project last summer on the strict condition that a decorative loggia centre piece (pictured) be removed from the scheme.

It is understood the redesign proposals are due to be unveiled in the coming weeks.

A spokesperson for RHP said: ‘The project team is working on a revised design to mark the new entrance to Kensington Palace which we hope to share with planning officers from the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea shortly.

‘We have carefully considered the planning committee’s views on this particular part of the scheme and feel that the revisions to the loggia design address their comments.’

No-one from John Simpson architects was available for comment.
