Conversion & remodeling of listed building
Our brief for this project was to design and oversee the refurbishment works of two listed buildings, and at the same time, make them more suitable as family dwellings.
Nos. 112 and 115 Pilton Street, are part of a Grade II listed terrace at the bottom of Pilton Street, on the edge of Barnstaple. The properties recently became vacant after more than 50 years, and so were due a complete makeover.
We carried out surveys of both buildings and produced options for renovation and remodeling works. A key part of this was converting the loft spaces to provide additional accommodation. This enabled a new double bedroom to be created on the second floor, which in turn freed up space on the first floor to allow a bathroom to be formed on that level.
Converting the loft and rearranging the spaces on the first floor meant that the whole of the existing ground floor extension could be transformed into a kitchen, commensurate with the size and living space in the rest of the cottages.
Along with the improvements to the layout we had to deal with problems common to older buildings including rising damp and dry rot and find ways to improve the thermal efficiency of the properties.
Following the grant of planning and listed building consent, we developed the technical design proposal, and managed the construction phase of the project
