LONDON STREET

Location: Reading City Centre

Type: Residential development 

Stage: Planning approval

The development will provide well designed, high quality, discreet town centre living, making sure each unit receives generous daylight, sunlight, amenity and privacy in a compact city centre site.

It will be formed by extending & converting an existing dentist clinic, together with replacing a rear annex building fronting onto a pedestrian passageway, Sims Court, and adjacent open car park area. Proposed mews style housing will face onto Sims Court and have front garden/terrace areas enclosed by brick walls to act as a buffer to the semi-public passageway. The facades of the mews style housing will be articulated with projecting bays, a recessed glazed stairwell, and a 'slot' leading to a courtyard designed to take account of existing windows in the back wall of London Court. 

The proposal has a mix of units, including 3 three-bedroom family sized units that have landscaped private gardens to the east end of the site.


Private Home in Essex

Location: Essex

Type: Replacement house

Stage: Planning approval  

Designed to resemble a small group of farm buildings, this bespoke new family home sits elegantly among neighbouring converted barns. The main envelope takes the shape of two barn-style blocks linked by a glazed entrance hall and conservatory. The double height space to the rear contains modern dining and kitchen areas with a study, set above the dining room bay, taking full advantage of the views to the Stour Estuary. Between the blocks, and opposite the entrance hall, is a fully glazed conservatory with full width bi folding doors leading to a sheltered terrace area


ST. JOHN STREET

Location: Islington - London

Type: Office roof extension

Stage: Planning approval  

The extension will provide additional floor space for the third floor office/studio units on mezzanines. Behind the sloping front roof, the extension will have a flat roof, set below the tile creasing of the existing chimneys. The rear facades of the extension will be clad semi-reflective metal panels to give a lightweight appearance and maximize light. As this project is located within a conservation area it has been carefully designed to not affect the light or outlook from surrounding properties. Crucially, it will be 'invisible' from the street.


ST. JOHN STREET

Location: Islington - London

Type: Office rear extension 

Stage: On site

In the revised design the mezzanine floor and roof enclosure are set back from the boundary with Stable Court so as not to be visible. The revised design will not be visible and will have no impact on the Conservation Area.

AWAITING PLANNING 

This pre-application submission is essentially to establish the principle of change of use and redevelopment of the site. In order to ascertain the best strategy for this much underused Brownfield site we have explored two approaches, both largely residential in nature. One option is for a denser proposal - a mixed use scheme with more smaller units in the form of flats; the second option is less dense with larger, family sized units in the form of mews houses. It is hoped that the pre app response will establish the Council's preferred mix.
