The Jewish Blind and Disabled Charity, 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.

Situated in the heart of Mayfair and for The Grosvenor Estate, 18-22 Weighhouse Street was a project to provide two new retail units and two luxury apartments.
The scheme involved the conversion and remodelling of the lower ground, ground and first floors of a 19th century building to create contemporary retail and residential spaces.

15 North Audley Street, Mayfair, provided five new high specification apartments for the Grosvenor Estate.
The project involved the conversion, remodelling and extension of redundant office space on the upper levels of a 19th century building to create new contemporary residential units.

In the Highgate Conservation Area, this project was the restoration and conversion to apartments of a 1916 listed building, originally built for housing the female staff of the Prudential Assurance Company.
Through consultation with Conservation Officers and Historic England, planning was secured for 15 residential units. The scheme includes the addition of a penthouse, infills to the rear U-shaped floor plates at first, second and third floors as well as two new basement levels. The lower level is for parking and the upper one for leisure facilities including a pool, sauna, steam room and gym.
Substantial improvements were made to the external facades through the removal of two external metal staircases and existing services.
The somewhat dilapidated grounds were fully restored to provide both private and communal landscaped gardens.

This Grade II* listed building has several superb interiors as well as extensive landscaped and protected gardens.
Restoration and development option studies looked at the potential of turning the property into apartments, a boutique hotel or its restoration as a single residence.

As part of these studies we explored the possibility of an element of enabling development based on English Heritage’s guidelines for the conservation of ‘significant places’. For the EH ‘enabling work’ option we considered providing residential units to the rear of the site to finance the restoration of the main house.

This private residence in St George’s Hill, Weybridge comprises a 12,000sq.ft. five bedroom house with indoor swimming pool, games room, steam room, sauna, office facilities, library and a number of large reception areas. Staff facilities are placed above the garage wing of the house. There is also a Banya (a Russian hot and cold spa) within the extensive landscaped grounds.
The practice was also commissioned to undertake the interior design of the property.
Since its completion the house has received two awards in the ‘Best Luxury House’ category; a Gold Award in the What House Awards and Highly Commended in the London Evening Standard New Luxury Homes Awards. The awards relate to both the building itself and the interior design.
