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.
