Designing for Listed Buildings

Wednesday, February 9th, 2022

It’s always an interesting experience to take on a conservation project. This beautiful timber roof structure has been revealed during the renovation of a Grade II Listed house – previously a butcher’s shop – in the heart of a Buckinghamshire village. Works are now underway to carefully restore the timbers, and ensure the roof’s longevity.

This particular house is also being extended to the rear to provide a new first floor bedroom with en suite, and a larger kitchen beneath. We have successfully applied for Listed Building consent for a number of repairs to the structure, in addition to the extension.

Working on listed buildings with a long history behind them requires sensitive treatment and a detailed understanding of the processes involved. The extension and renovation of the White Lion pub in St Leonards combined a similar need for restoring the older part of the structure, whilst ensuring that the building could function as a profitable hospitality business.
