The brief was to maximise the potential of the adjoining property.  They required a new and spacious kitchen showroom with additional storage, staff and office space.

The practice initially obtained statutory consents for a new roof, leadwork and stone repairs.  By converting the original 3 storey house into a smaller 2 storey maisonette, the expansion of the shop on the upper floors could be maximised.

“The practice was very positive right from the outset of our project even though it involved a problematic listed building. They captured our imagination for our major refurbishment project, and were professional and enthusiastic from start to completion. A first class friendly service that we would highly recommend to anyone.”
