Beacon Lodge is a series of homes, using modern detailing to create a striking yet sensitively designed development within a conservation area.
On the original building (Block B), we demolished part of the previous poor quality extensions and added a new basement to the full extent of the original building. MNP drew a wholesale internal rearrangement of the building layout providing room for a vertical extension and opening up the roof space. The original building was converted into 3 residential units.
Block A was a construction of a single unit with a full basement to include property extents and external space. This is a hybrid steel framed building to create large glazed elevations and cantilevered first floor.
Block C was the construction of 6 maisonettes. Full basement included property extents, external space to the rear and light wells to the front elevation. There were complicated façade support details due to the saw tooth brickwork design.
