The total re-planning and refurbishment of a five storey house in a gated development in St John’s Wood.

Working closely with landscape and interior designers the house was completely reconfigured to provide all family members with their own floor level that included bedroom, bathroom and private study / recreation spaces.

The ground floor kitchen / dining area was provided with all new fittings and a bespoke fireplace. The adjacent rear garden and second floor terrace at the side of the property were all totally redesigned.

The property is in a Conservation Area and therefore approval from Westminster was required for new juliette balconies at first floor level leading from the main reception space.

The regeneration and conversion of a rather tired 1960s built office block into commercial and residential accommodation was completed by Legendre UK, under a D&B contract for BNP Paribas Real Estate.

The scheme originally designed by Squire & Partners for two floors of commercial space and fourteen floors of residential accommodation with basement parking and storage was taken to tender stage by A&Q. The successful tenderer Legendre, in winning their first UK contract, appointed Moxley Architects as the lead designer to make further changes to the approval via the client and Camden planners, produce the final working drawings and progress the project on site.

The original roof structure was removed and three additional floor levels added, as well as major remodelling of the reinforced concrete frame.

The development also includes an element of affordable housing incorporated in a stand alone building adjacent to the tower.

The Jewish Blind and Disabled Charity (JBD), approached Moxley Architects to review an existing planning proposal that had received adverse comments from the local planning authority. The proposal was for an extension to their assisted living development at Cecil Rosen Court.  JBD selected Moxley Architects for their strong track record for dealing with listed buildings and conservation areas and to also advise on how the scheme could be developed further.

The original scheme was substantially revised following lengthy discussions with the client and planning officers and just four weeks after being commissioned, a new planning application was submitted for determination. The new scheme receive support from planning officers but also gained an additional 10% floor area to provide 19 assisted living apartments. The new building is an extension to the existing facility and is connected via a glazed link at ground level.

The construction team had the challenge of building the new facility whilst ensuring that the health and safety of the residents of the adjoining facility was not compromised. The new wing is now known as The Dyna and Fala Weinstock Wing.
