Listed Building Conversion

Adventurous but sympathetic propsals to Listed Buldings can result in exciting results, both in terms of design and economics.

Domain work hard pre-application to achieve agreement with Local Heritage Departments achieving 100% success on listed building application.

The conversion and restoration of this Listed Building at Newington Green in London extended the usable area with sensitive and creative extensions to achieve 3 self contained flats and a split level shop. English Heritage were incredibly supportive and allowed work considerably more extensive than the limited intervention proposed by the Local Council.

Originally let as an art gallery, the comercial space has been in continuous use since completion as a clear demonstration of the quality of the design, with upper parts being sold off to architects and other design-aware profesisonals.

The building was featured in the London Evening Standard, and the current occupier listed in Elle Decoration.

Special techniques were employed for the work, with every attempt made to keep the commercial vaiability as a commercial property development.

First floor rooms retain original 18th. C panelling that had to be removed intact, treated with paste on the reverse side for dry rot, cleaned and then re-instated with a secret door cut into the moulding at joint lines.
