Grand Designs Winner 2009

Best Conversion Grand Designs Winner 2009. To convert this Georgian warehouse into a three-bedroom apartment with separate office.

Brief
The brief was to convert this part of a late Georgian warehouse into a three-bedroom apartment with separate office.

Solution
Our strategy has been to repair the historic fabric and to retain period features, whilst upgrading the envelope to meet today’s regulations.

This warehouse has fantastic open spaces that define its character.

We developed a free-standing sculptural object made of white oak that sits within the floor plate and generates the spaces.

This box contains the subservient spaces such as bathrooms and storage.

Additional Information
The oak structure is made up out of machined lengths of oak held together with treaded stainless steel rods, bolted and capped either end.

This incredibly rigid structure allows for the inclusion of translucent Perspex blocks. The corrugated effect allows on the one hand conceal the location of doors and openings thereby underlining the sculptural effect and on the other hand will take up some of the tolerances and movement that you will encounter with a natural material.

The other surfaces of this wooden intervention were made using laminated Plywood. The white shiny surface replicates that of the kitchen.
