In the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham, KC+A has received planning for 20 homes as part of a conversion project that transforms, Leigh Court, an early 20th Century building on Avonmore Road.
The original structure housed workers for J Lyons & Co. and had offices at ground level with a warehouse at the rear. The proposals convert Leigh Court into eleven apartments and four lateral penthouses. The warehouse is replaced with a mews of five contemporary houses.
Prime residential accommodation is arranged around a series of courtyards, terraces and balconies with communal facilities managed by a concierge.
Leigh Court’s handsome Edwardian façade will be restored and the new houses are a contemporary interpretation of the fine brick and sandstone detailing predominant in the area.
Throughout the design process KC+A consulted with local residents and ward councilors allowing the scheme to evolve in such a way as to address concerns and to eventually win active support for the proposals.
‘We are very pleased to have secured consent for this great scheme on a site which had a history of refusals. KCA have done an excellent job in leading the team and overcoming the many challenges we faced along the way.’ Oleg Chulkov. LPW
