This project required the renovation and extension of a Grade II listed building; this proved to be difficult as conservation officers were highly involved from the offset and throughout. Their detailed requirements included the retention of 200 year old, failed, structural timbers, as a result requiring the addition of resin reinforcement.
Much of the existing layout had to be kept, however within the commercial units we were able to sub divide one of the rooms with a partially glazed partition, thus revealing the beautifully detailed existing ceiling yet allowing privacy at lower levels. At lower ground, ground and first floor levels the building was remodeled and extended at the rear, allowing the addition of nine medical suites.
The project also included the renovation and extension of the rear mews house where the flat roof was replaced with a pitched roof which allowed us to fit in an additional floor.
