Completion at Churchfield Road
Brooks Murray have carefully restored a residential building in Acton, west London.
Whilst the three-storey building, once accommodating six flats, had been approved for demolition and complete new build, the client preferred to retain the existing building and offer it a more modern look. Brooks Murray were therefore asked to work within the existing fabric, to preserve the character of the area and yet renew the building with simple, contemporary detailing.
Excited to be asked to develop a fitting approach for reusing buildings with such potential, Brooks Murray redesigned the existing layout whilst expanding the rear and adding a mansard roof to accommodate a total of ten flats.
Local feedback has noted the refreshed frontage enhancing the aspect from the road, and neighbours to the rear – all of whom have a visual connection – have appreciated the discreet improvements to their outlook.
