Nestled in the green belt around London this 19th century dilapidated former forge is now been converted into a two bed family house.

We have gone through a very elaborate process to get a planning approval. The building is within a listed cartilage in a conservation area. The clients brief was to convert this dilapidated former industrial budding into a two bedroom house. As part of the planning application, we had to obtain a dusk survey, a historical survey and a tree survey. We made sure to retain all original features of the building.

The design concept was to show the forging elements of the original building – the two fireplaces were rained and revamped to suit a residential use, the roof support structure was exposed showcasing beautiful trusses and last but not least the spiral staircase completes the forged look.
