This Grade II listed, early Nineteenth Century coach house is situated in the grounds of a substantial listed townhouse and within an important conservation area on the edge of the city centre.

The original structure suffered bomb damage during the second world war and was subject to a series of unsympathetic repairs during its subsequent life as a storage unit.

The site now offers a fantastic opportunity to sensitively repair the original, historic structure, whilst creating a high quality, contemporary mews house that will provide a viable, long term use for the building.

As the site is effectively landlocked on three sides, we developed a floor plan that allowed us to lay out the proposed house around a central, glazed courtyard; this innovative arrangement provides valuable private outdoor space within the site boundary, whilst importantly allowing natural light to flood into all of the living spaces.

The glazed courtyard also acts as a central hub around which life in the house will revolve and provides a surprising and ambitious, contemporary intervention behind the modest, historic street facade of the original building.
