This project involved the conversion and restoration of a series of existing 18th & 19th century grade II listed buildings to form 21 serviced live/work apartments with shared support facilities. The project involved complex negotiations with English Heritage to achieve a contemporary design that reflected the style and nature of the building’s new function. The design incorporated a new steel frame located within the existing retained stone shell and a three storey glazed atrium space. The existing roof was removed; allowing the insertion of upper floor apartments with balconies.
