Outline designs complete at Westminster

Posted by AFL in Residential Projects

Outline design is now complete for our extension and refurbishment proposals at Albion Street. The existing Georgian house is Grade II listed and located within a conservation area of Westminster.

A non-original 3 storey rear extension and conservatory is to be demolished and replaced with a contemporary proposal. This extends into the side return to accommodate a larger kitchen and additional living space below. The top floor of the extension replaces the poorly detailed conservatory, providing a glazed reading room with an adjacent terrace.

The new construction refers to the materiality and proportions of the original building. A double height window to the rear draws from the proportions and fine glazing bars of the sash windows to the existing house, while new facades are in a gauged brick which is also present in original lintels. Balustrades, planters and facade details are in bronze.
