A range of 23 apartments has been created by the redevelopment of two adjacent sites, including a vacant former grand town house and the demolition of an office extension.
The two new apartment blocks – Stonesby Square and Stonesby Mews – are in the New Walk conservation area.
The development is designed to sit comfortably with nearby listed buildings and the character of the conservation area whilst providing an interesting mix of spacious, high quality, city accommodation with low running costs.
The locally important Stonesby House has been returned to its original residential use by a careful reordering of the interior and conversion of the attic spaces.
Historic features and fabric were retained and new elements were sympathetically detailed to complement the quality of the original building.
The modern external appearance of the new build apartment blocks refers to local building characteristics. Natural slate roofing and red clay facing bricks are in keeping with the predominant materials found in the conservation area and maintain the distinctive appearance of Stonesby House.
Panels of contrasting render and brindle engineering brickwork were used on the surfaces of transitional elements to connect the old with the new.
The development includes studio, single and two-bedroom apartments and penthouses.
