Telling Tales out of School
Conserve and enhance were our watchwords for the Old School House, located in the Bradshaw Chapel Conservation area. Dating from the late 19th century, the original building has been converted into five townhouses, whilst the new build element comprises fifteen high-quality apartments. Sympathetic to its original form, the older building has enjoyed minimal exterior interventions- lengthening windows, adding balconies and rooflights. The new build references the School House but reads as a distinctive element achieved through the use of textured buff bricks with rake horizontal joints. A considered and genial blend of old and new has made the Old School House a coherent and most desirable development.
