24 Queen Anne's Gate, WestminsterBuilt Heritage
This project will convert the existing office spaces at the Grade I listed 24 Queen Anne’s Gate into a residence with a focus on improving the long-term optimal use of the building and its environmental footprint. Working closely with Gibson Thornley Architects and Historic England, The Townscape Consultancy achieved consent for proposals that reduce the operational carbon of the building including for the retrofit of double glazing into the existing sash windows; representing one of the first instances in England where listed building consent has been granted for double glazing in a Grade I listed building.
The proposals will renovate and activate the utility of this terraced property located in one of the most complete eighteenth century streets in London. The project will also celebrate the property’s heritage value by breathing new life into the historic built fabric. The project focuses on reimagining a mix of private office spaces as elegant domestic spaces that take advantage of the building’s substantial heritage.
The Townscape Consultancy provided specialist advice on the historic building fabric of this building and produced a Built Heritage Assessment for this project. This report comprised an in-depth assessment of the building’s areas of significance, summarising which features of the building could be sympathetically adapted to enhance the building’s heritage, utility and use. This report was based on extensive archival, desktop research and on-site fabric appraisal.
