Outline designs complete at Westminster
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.
