Our Hop House scheme in Covent Garden has been shortlisted for the Sunday Times British Homes Awards for best conversion, restoration, refurbishment of an existing building.
The project is a new residential development converting and extending an existing 1980's office building into 29 luxury apartments.
The scheme includes a new two storey penthouse roof extension with bronze shingle cladding and large roof terrace overlooking central London.
The development was completed this year with all the flats now handed over to their new owners.
Practical completion has been successfully achieved on a mixed use retail and residential development on Henrietta Street in the heart of Covent Garden for our client Capco.
The existing Listed Building was an outdated office that we converted into five apartments included a 3 bed duplex penthouse and a 2,300sq.ft retail unit at ground and basement.
The project involved replacement of the roof of the building and creation of a loft style space in the upper floor of the penthouse.
Knight Harwood are the main contractors on the project and Gardiner and Theobald are the project managers.
Brimelow McSweeney Architects have received Planning Approval from Westminster City Council for the alterations to the existing facade of Compass House which follows on from the receipt of a Prior Approval for 30 luxury apartments in April this year. This is the largest residential scheme to receive a Permitted Development Approval in Westminster under the current Government legislation.
The development consists of the conversion of an existing 1990's office building into apartments with new balconies and terraces and will include a new entrance from Kensington Gardens Square.
The apartments scheme is due to start construction this year.
We have submitted a mixed tenure scheme for 273 apartments at 160-166 Chrisp Street in Poplar to Tower Hamlets and the Greater London Authority for Planning Approval on behalf of Bellway Homes.
