Mews house extension in Westminster
Project BriefOur client bought this property at auction and came to Get Planning and Architecture because he needed to have the mews house extended and refurbished to put back onto the market quickly.
The brief involved a roof extension which needed to conform with Conservation Area design guidance and having worked with us on a previous project, our client was aware of our extensive knowledge of Historic Buildings in Westminster.
Project OutcomeFollowing our detailed building survey, we suggested two different options in order to reduce the risk of a planning refusal. The design was intentionally in keeping with the historic character of the street in terms of materials, style and detail in order to satisfy the planners. Our planning application also included a robust Design and Heritage Statement and this was instrumental in securing a high quality approval that got the best solution for our client.
Following planning approval, Get Planning and Architecture prepared detailed design drawings and obtained Building Regulations Approval and the development as built thus significantly increased the value of the house.
