The challenge for this project was how to take a former mortuary building and through extensions and re-cladding create a contemporary new residential build. The project consists of extending the original structure and adding another block to increase the residential units from 2 to 10.

By retrofitting the existing block with white render and new windows, improving detailing to front walls, steps and the building entrance, we gave the exterior of the existing building new life. Zinc cladding was used on the new block to complement the changes. Whilst a limited palette, the materials give a crisp, modern appearance and ensure that the development consists of high quality materials.
