New Contemporary rear extension and basement for a Grade II Listed building in Kensington
Rodić Davidson Architects have worked extensively with listed buildings. It is common for our clients to seek to extend their properties in a way that provides valuable additional space while also wanting to navigate complex planning and heritage requirements.
A successful example of where we have worked within these constraints, is in this contemporary rear in-fill extension to a Grade II listed terraced house in Kensington’s Thurloe and Smith’s Charity Conservation Architecture Area. The proposal was motivated by the client’s desire to upgrade the quality and functionality of internal accommodation while preserving and enhancing the character of the listed building. The scheme replaces an existing, unsympathetic extension and allows more daylight to enter the ground and lower ground floors.
Other works to the property included a new basement beneath the rear garden, full interior refurbishment and the reinstatement of historic features throughout.
