This project, carried out on behalf of Teachers’ Housing Association, provided an additional one-bedroom flat within an existing detached building located within the Mapesbury Conservation Area. The large unused loft space was converted into a separate one-bedroom flat, with a new structural steel frame installed within the existing Victorian era building. In addition, two of the existing flats on the first floor were fully rearranged and refurbished, with alterations made in order to achieve the most practical layout. As a result, a sub-standard bedsit was converted to a one-bedroom flat and the layout of the adjoining flat enhanced. The opportunity was also taken to enhance the communal facilities, including redecoration of the communal stairwell as well as the installation of a new bicycle storage facility in the rear garden and upgrading of the existing refuse storage area at the front.
