Architects have been working on a project to convert an old pub in
Battersea into five flats and mews house whilst retaining the ground and
basement floors for commercial use.
The project on a late victorian property has just been submitted for
planning approval, is aimed to extend and refurbish an existing Public
House on Lavender Hill.
The development was subject to a ‘Pre App’ submission to Wandsworth Planning Authority. The Ground floor is proposed to be extended with a structural glass extension to the street to mitigate the loss of space at the rear now proposed as a separate access to the new flats and a attached mews house. The principle was to minimise the visual impact to the Street by reforming the roof into a mansard penthouse, and then create a cascade of new flats on the upper floors with terraces preventing views to the north toward Central London. Planning Decision is expected in July
