The significant refurbishment of an existing Grade II listed Victorian house and adjoining mews, including the creation of a new basement floor level over the entire building footprint. A new ‘endless’ pool was installed within the mews, and a reconstructed traditional stone stair replaces the existing in the main house, along with 2 new passenger lifts.
Reinforced concrete underpinning was used beneath the main building perimeter in order to maximize the newly created floor area, with an insitu RC reconstructed lower ground floor slab. Secant piled walls were used beneath the mews building, where the proposed basement extends beneath the water table.
Due to the listed nature of the existing building detailed drawings were submitted with the planning application, showing the existing structure (with demolitions in red), proposed structure, assumed sequence of construction and temporary works.
