Pardon Chambers Architects have been commissioned to work on a variety of listed and heritage buildings in London and Hertfordshire.

A variety of work has been undertaken including extensions, alterations and renovations as well as improving the energy efficiency of the heritage building stock.

This locally listed building included a new development behind a retained facade of a former public house, deepening of the existing basement and new build accommodation to more than double the existing building footprint. This provided 5000 sq. ft. of commercial space at basement and ground floor level with 7000 sq. ft. of residential accommodation above.

We were appointed as architects and contract administrators to deliver this challenging project on a constrained site in the heart of Kentish Town. Adjacent to a disused London Underground station this site also had a complex set of S106 conditions to be satisfied.

We have been involved with the renovation and extension of a variety of listed houses in Hertfordshire and Essex. This has included the upgrading of the houses to improve energy efficiency and extending and altering the houses to make them more suitable for our client’s needs.

"Nicola Chambers has worked with us on four different planning / listed building applications over the past few years. It has not been a smooth process, and we have had to amend and resubmit on occasion, but her dogged determination and constant professionalism has paid off and we now have approval in place for the changes we wanted to make. She has also assisted with specifications for building works, again with great care and attention to detail. I would wholeheartedly recommend Pardon Chambers to anyone looking for a dedicated firm of architects."

The Acteon Consultancy needed a complete refurbishment of their dated, run down offices over four floors of a Georgian building in central Cambridge. The fit out design had to reflect new ways of hybrid working after the pandemic by creating a new hub for colleagues who now split working time between home and the office. A new cafe and reception area was created on the ground floor with associated meeting rooms and elsewhere a variety of quiet and collaborative workspaces were provided for different working styles.

Stone Buildings

Stone Buildings is a Grade I listed building in Lincoln’s Inn, London. We helped our clients obtain listed building consent and a Licence to Alter to refurbish their offices, toilets and meeting room.
