The building has suffered a number of fires and leaks was found in disrepair and dilapidation prior to works commencement.
A procedure of delicate redesign has gone through to retain as much as possible of the original buildings fabric.
The client called for a dynamic layout design whereby the top floors were to be converted to residential flats and the ground and basement to accommodate the diverse commercial activities.
The rear of the first floor benefits now from a brand new rooftop terrace over the rear extension.
The client has recently arranged for a celebration at the newly finished house.
