This project was for a permitted development application to convert office block into residential apartments. Brooks Murray then went to apply for planning for a new roof and new façade. Alongside the additional storey, the existing building will be updated with a rendered facade both, to improve U-values but also to provide a light, modern facing aesthetic.
The improved scheme included Improvements to the accessibility of the ground floor by the provision of a ramp for disabled access as well as the re-instatement of the one-way access road from High Road to the rear service road accessing Station Road.
The site does not sit within a conservation area however a numbers 62 to 99 are within a conservation area. The site sits in close proximity to Lee Valley Regional Park It sits within a residential area with a mixture of period houses, modern houses and retail units. Access to Bridge house is from High Road or via Station Road into the Car Park at the rear. There is no outdoor space however with the proposals for the new configuration of the existing top floor and the addition of an extra storey, there will be outdoor amenity space for the flats on the top level. The development is a mix of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom flats.
