Flat Conversion to Victorian Property in a Conservation Area
The proposed works comprise the conversion of the building into four 2 bed apartments including conversion of the basement into habitable space. The building will be refurbished internally and extended over two stories at the rear. The scheme also includes the addition of a modern side extension containing vertical circulation. The brief was to provide exciting, spacious apartments with a high quality finish that appeal to young professionals.
Contextual design has been a key driver throughout the design process and has shaped the form of the extensions and the materials used. The dark tones for the window frames and dark lintels will give a coherent aesthetic and sharp look to this Victorian building. For the covered stairwell, the use of brick with crisp detailing and black stained timber will create a feeling of high quality. The rear extension makes predominant use of matching brick, with windows and finishes similar to the existing.
The scheme received planning in February 2023 and is currently at tender stage.
