Four-storey wing approved for listed Georgian house
Studio Meda and Julian Harrap have won planning for a four-storey extension to a grade II listed Georgian house in a conservation area.
It has taken two years, two refusals and two appeals to secure permission for the project in Camberwell, south London.
Studio Meda - Martin Ebert Design Architecture - enlisted the support of heritage architect Julian Harrap as a consultant, plus two planning consultants and two engineers.
Ebert said: “The main challenge was to integrate the proposed four-storey wing into the overall architectural composition of the house and that of the setting.”
The stock brick-clad extension, which is set back from the front face of the house by about 2m, contains a WC and pantry on the ground floor, a study and bedroom on the first floor and a family bathroom on the second.
“This resulting recess replicates the recess of the neighbouring house and will therefore integrate well in the overall setting of the group,” added Ebert.
The project will also involve reinstating the wall of the front garden which was demolished by a previous owner.
“Reinstating the garden will lift the appearance of the house and contribute significantly to the amenity of the wider setting,” added Ebert.
