Redevelopment of a mixed-use Georgian Terrace into 4 apartments within the Charlotte Street Conservation Area
The proposals provide high quality, mixed size, residential units of contemporary standards, with improved access and amenities.
The works require alterations to the existing rear extension, part excavation of a basement, erection of a 2nd floor extension, and alterations to the fenestration on the existing roof extension.The interior of the residential building will be stripped-out and modernised with improved finishes and services. The floor structure will be leveled and strengthened and a new stair will be built to connect the main levels of the house with the new accommodation at the rear of the building. The proposed strategy for intervention to the rear of the building aims to be responsive and respectful to the surrounding context. The rear masonry elevation facing Crabtree Fields, currently in a state of disrepair , will be improved and altered by forming new openings articulated to respond to its immediate neighbours at Crabtree Fields and 7-15 Whitfield Street. The residential units, set behind, will be fully glazed with large sliding windows to maximise the amount of natural light entering the building.
