Planning Success – Lansdowne
Studio Indigo has recently obtained planning permission on a large detached Italianate styled Victorian town house located in the Ladbroke Estate Conservation area.
The property had been extended and altered at the rear under earlier refurbishment projects giving the parts of the rear façade a cluttered appearance.
The proposals included modifying the existing rear projections in terms of appearance, mass, scale and detailing to better integrate with the original rear elevation behind. In conjunction with these alterations, an elegant double storey bay extension is proposed at the rear accommodating a grand lateral drawing room at upper ground floor level and additional pool leisure and ancillary spaces at lower ground level. Internally, each of the floor layouts will be re-configured to suit the requirements of a large family, whilst the interiors will be completely refurbished in keeping with character and period of the property.
With the clients very keen to occupy the property as soon as possible, an initial strip out phase will commence in Mid-November 2014 with the full restoration works due to start in January 2015.
