|Client||The Crown Estate|
This project involved the amalgamation, refurbishment and redevelopment of a Grade II listed, Victorian public house and an unlisted adjacent property.
Working within the constraints of the historic plan and the existing fabric of the buildings, the scheme re-organises the interior spaces to provide provision for a high-quality commercial premises laid over the basement, ground and first floor, and three two-bedroom apartments situated on the second to fourth floors. Existing historic features and panelling in The George pub have been retained and many original features sensitively refurbished. MSMR's re-design of the apartments ensures they benefit from new, contemporary finishes, fitting and services whilst retaining a traditional feel inspired by the public house and original features of the listed West End building.
MSMR provided a full architectural service for The Crown Estate on the residential section of the development and shell and core of the commercial areas. The scheme is designed to achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating.
