Alex Tart Architects have obtained planning and listed building consent for alterations and extensions to a home on Ovington Street, within the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea.
The house is grade II listed, and so following the first stage of schematic design, a detailed pre-planning application was submitted. This gave us the opportunity to engage with the council at an early stage. The design, therefore, evolved taking into consideration the planner’s comments whilst still fulfilling the clients brief. Approval for the clients desired scheme was therefore secured in one quick application.
The approved scheme includes a rear extension to the lower ground floor to provide a new dining room with improved connection to the garden. Internal alterations to the upper floors included re-ordering the first floor to provide a generous master suite, and an extension to the closet wing to create an additional bathroom. At the front of the house, new traditionally detailed dormer windows with moulded timber cornices and sash windows will replace inappropriate modern dormers that were installed before the house was listed, reinstating the property’s historic charm.
