An assessment of significance was produced to inform design proposals for alterations and change of use to a restaurant with a small manager’s flat above. Andrew had a very successful restaurant in the adjacent building (unlisted) where he had installed a catering kitchen. There was no link between the two buildings, but this was a crucial element for the proposed new use. Design advice was provided to ensure planning consents were granted. Approved alterations consisted of installing two beautifully detailed secret doors, so a Georgian solution for a Georgian building, along with a small link structure to access the kitchens. Specifications for like for like work were produced and agreed with the local authority so roof, lime plaster ceilings and decorative plaster cornices could be repaired whilst consents were being obtained. Our practice also discharged all planning conditions including sourcing bricks and sample panels. In association with GF Design Services.
