This Grade II listed building in Thames Ditton dates from 1792. The former manor house, priory and chapel were repurposed as a care home in 1905, but in recent years the historic buildings have posed challenges to delivering modern standards of care.
Oliver & Robb Architects rationalised the design in a renovation project that created 78 luxury bed spaces, while preserving the building’s character.
Grade II listed buildings have regulations in place to protect their historical and architectural significance. This means that building work cannot be carried out without written consent from the relevant local authorities. You can, however, work with them to choose windows and materials that are in keeping with the design of the property, to improve thermal efficiency and performance if you want or need to replace them.
We specialise in providing heritage traditional box sash windows, helping to replace and restore sash windows while remaining faithful to their classic design. This project allowed us to provide windows with improved energy efficiency to ensure the building could provide a comfortable environment for care while reducing high running costs.
If we cannot restore an existing heritage sash window, we replace them with traditional box sash windows that remain faithful to their historic design, seamlessly replacing existing windows using timber, and heritage-respectful designs.
If you would like to find out more about how we can provide similar work for your own project or property, please get in touch and we’ll be able to discuss your project with you and arrange an appointment to survey the building to discuss the best way forward.
We have helped domestic and commercial clients benefit from heritage sash windows that remain in keeping with the design of your property, enabling you to remain within the requirements of listed buildings.
