Client: Gibbons Homes
Services: Structural Engineering & Party Wall
Gibbons Homes wanted to convert an existing cobbled smokehouse and stables in Southwold into residential accomodation, and create a link between the two existing buildings.
The project provided 3 residential units and car parking, with the linkage building providing a modern contrast to the existing buildings.
Working within the conservation area required the design of the conversions to maintain their historic reference, whilst the new linkage needed to be a modern addition. Because it was a listed building, we also had to work closely with the Conservation Team.
The tight site in a central position in Southwold required the implementation of no less than six party wall agreements.
Materials used included a zinc roof and powder coated aluminium windows and doors.
