Owned by the same family for over 30 years and originally subdivided into flats, the client wishes to thoughtfully renovate this 5 storey Grade II Listed Georgian house, to make it work flexibly to meet the family's needs today and in the coming years.
Mindful of its historic setting, a number of possible options were examined In the early stages, to establish how best to improve and modernise the existing layout for the client.
The upper and lower floors will be reconfigured to provide much needed ensuite accommodation, semi independent spaces for the extended family and guests and adaptive to allow accessibility in future years.
Well proportioned 'classical' reception rooms at piano nobile and ground floors will be preserved and augmented by a new winter garden opening up to a roof terrace.
Levels of natural light will be enhanced and further exterior views created with the addition of new windows and structural glass rooflights to rear elevations. Roof mounted photo-voltaic cells will enhance the buildings green credentials.
On the strength of this project, wcjw has been commissioned to start work on the reconfiguration of another listed building in Upper Montagu Street.
Also wcjw have been recently appointed for the refurbishment of an apartment in Bayswater:
Listed Grade II, this duplex apartment has the benefit of the original grand drawing room at first floor level as well as a 1980's century split level extension to the rear of the property. Our proposals restore and enhance the historic fabric of the original rooms with a contemporary design for the refurbishment of the 20th C extension.
Status: In planning - listed building consent/ planning permission.
