Background

Conversion of three Grade II listed buildings to 23 luxury serviced apartments.

The development is based on the site of the King’s Great Wardrobe, a site of great historical importance. Originating in the 1300s, the Great Kings Wardrobe was used as a branch of the Exchequer, to be later expanded and rebuilt in the late seventeenth and eighteenth century following the great fire of London.

 Our Role

Stace were appointed in a Cost Management capacity.

Our Impact

A major restoration project in the City of London, this development involved the conversion of three Grade II listed houses and two former office buildings into 23 fully serviced, luxury residential apartments. This was to add to our Client’s existing portfolio of 69 apartments, which have been sympathetically incorporated into one of the few surviving early eighteenth century squares in the City of London.

Restoration works were extremely sensitive and involved connecting the houses and the office buildings with a new infill structure on the site of the internal light wells. English Heritage closely monitored the site through planning and delivery stage; the existing historic fabric of the houses was carefully retained and accommodated in the restoration works, resulting in a pleasing mixture of modern and traditional.
