Planning application for refurbishment and conversion of a Grade II* listed house in the Adelphi Conservation Area.
7-10 Adam Street is a surviving row of 18th century mid-terraced houses from the Adelphi development designed by John and Robert Adam. The site is located on Adam Street within the north- east corner of the Adelphi Conservation Area, in the London Borough of Westminster. The terraced properties were built over vaulted interiors used as warehouses with direct access to the historical shoreline of the Thames. In the later centuries the terraces were much altered by numerous redevelopments, new infrastructural works related to the construction of the Embankment Gardens and nearly in the1930’s mostly demolished to make way for grander corporate buildings of much larger scale. The proposal relates to the conversion of four Grade II* listed buildings from office use to residential with restaurant use at basement levels on the site of 7-10 Adam Street. The design proposal provides 14 new apartments at No. 7- 9 and one self-contained townhouse at No.10, allowing the reinstatement of the original residential use to the former 18th century townhouses. Whilst preserving the majority of the internal plan form, the works encompass alterations to internal partitions and the creation of a minor rear infill extension at No.10, retaining the majority of the basement levels generally unchanged for restaurant use.
