The building is a former primitive Methodist chapel of 1860.ke store and a workshop for the clients, one of whom is an artist who will be able to live and work within this new two bedroom home.
The chapel is constructed in red brick under a slate roof, with decorative timber sash windows featuring coloured glazing, beneath attractive gauged brick arches. The building is modest in
scale yet is of a well-balanced and attractive design, and forms a dominant feature within its relatively undeveloped location. Due to its architectural and historic interest, the building is
considered a non-designated heritage asset as defined within annex 2 of the NPPF and therefore the conversion needed to be carefully considered.
We introduced a mezzanine bed deck above an open plan living space within the main chapel and added modest contemporary extension to the side with a second bedroom on the ground floor and a bathroom on the first floor.
Internally the existing walls were lined with breathable cork insulation with a new insulated floor.
