Refurbishment and restoration of a Grade II listed, five-storey terraced house to its original form as a single family dwelling, in Westminster

Appointed as architects and planners, Scott Brownrigg was briefed to secure planning permission and listed building consent for the refurbishment of the £10m property, converting the it from office use to its original form as a single family dwelling.

The conservation-led approach to the project is reinforced by the refurbishment or preservation of the majority of the fabric of the building as it already exists. The period features are then enhanced by inserting contemporary and freestanding fixtures and furnishings that are required for every day living.

A new glazed extension forms the key space in the building connecting the ground floor with the lower ground, and was designed with modern household requirements and living in mind.

The architectural package of refurbishments, restorations and improvements preserve the setting and special architectural and historic interests of the building.
