This week we obtained planning approval for two small interventions in London.

In Wandsworth Bridge Road in Fulham our scheme sees the conversion and extension of underused space behind and above a shop to create three new apartments.

In Cedar’s Road in Wandsworth we obtained permission to convert two disused garages to a new studio flat with a private courtyard.

Both sites are highly sustainable and show what can be done with the left over spaces in our cities.

We’re very excited to be involved in this change-of-use and refurbishment of an old workshop building in Frome to create some fantastic new office studios. The scheme has just received planning permission for the alterations to the façade and work has commenced on site, with the studios to be available later in the spring. The building was used in the mid 1930s to build the Napier-Railton world land-speed record breaking car and the original workshop building is being retained with individual workpods accommodated within it. Four individual studio spaces are also included, which look out through a new glazed façade onto the courtyard. This project will be part of a new venture with our partner company HomeStudio. We look forward to the development of the final product.

On Tuesday evening, Islington Council approved our design for the improvement of an historic mews in the Duncan Terrace / Colebrooke Row Conservation Area.

Our clients are a local family of builder developers who have been active in the borough for generations. Their passion for the site has informed the design process, which has resulted in a sensitive conservation of the best buildings and the replacement of the worst.

Our design will create new contemporary offices in an intimate and historic setting. Click here for images

Our project for Etec Group in Bow was approved by Tower Hamlets council last week. Ropery Yard will see a rare empty site in the Ropery Conservation Area become a landscaped mixed-use community of 8 flats and a small business building. The three storey building meets a two storey streetscape with an elegant design solution using frosted art glass to tie it in to the prominent parapets of the neighbouring houses. The planning authority complemented our sensitive yet contemporary approach to the location.
