6 Apartments, 30 Palace Rd London N11


The site comprised a dilapidated former Calvinist Methodist Church of Wales in a residential street of 2 storey houses and 3 storey apartment blocks in North London. 

Various options were considered, including conversion, alteration and refurbishment of the existing building, as well as 3 and 4 storey houses and a range of apartment options.
Planning approval was granted for a three storey residential development of six 2 bedroom apartments. 

The ground floor units had their own gardens. The upper storey ones had balconies, as well as a shared section of the rear garden.
The primary design objectives were:  
  • to develop a sustainable and healthy affordable housing scheme to meet Code 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes.
  • to achieve a contemporary interpretation of local urban block structure respectful of its residential context in terms of scale and massing, and attractive to ‘down-sizing’ tenants.
  • to provide highly efficient units throughout, to be fully accessible in accordance with Lifetime Homes Standards.
