Creation of 4 new flats on upper floors and reconfiguration of commercial units on lower floors

The brief for the project was to laterally convert No 11 & 12 to create an A1/A3 unit with 3 new flats above. At No 10, 1 new 2 bed flat was created and the commercial unit was reconfigured.

 11-12 NQS

The lower ground and ground floors were combined to create a good sized double A1/A3 unit.  Ground floor was lowered to create level access and made level throughout with a new painted shopfront.  The pavement area changed with very gentle fall so tables and chairs can be set out.

On upper levels, 3 lateral flats were provided replacing a warren of in adequate residential accommodation. Second and third floors accommodate 1 bed flats and at first floor the rear was extended to allow for a 2 bed flat. The common parts were reconfigured to provide access from No. 11 to upper floors.
As part of the works provision was made for a commercial kitchen extract to the rear of the building encased in second hand brick so it blends in with the rear of the building and space for condensers at roof level.

10 NQS

On lower floors the A1 unit was reconfigured by levelling the floor and removing partitions to open up and improve the quality of the retail space. A 2 bed flat has been spread across first, second and third floors replacing 3 small studio flats.
