Renovation and conversion of a Georgian warehouse

St.Michaels Street

GRAND DESIGNS BEST CONVERSION 2009
The brief was to convert this part of a late Georgian warehouse into a three-bedroom apartment with separate office.
Our strategy has been to restore the historic fabric and to retain period features, whilst upgrading the envelope to meet today’s regulations.

This warehouse has fantastic open spaces that define its character. We developed a free-standing sculptural object made of oak that sits within the floor plate and generates the spaces. This box contains the subservient spaces such as bathrooms and storage.
