Apt unveils resi adaptation of 19th century building in Covent Garden


In the centre of Covent Garden’s Seven Dials conservation area stands Chapter House, a new development rebuilt to a design by architects Apt to provide 40 apartments. The 19th century-constructed building


had several previous uses but lay unoccupied for many years and was “hindered by tight and unsympathetic accommodation,” said Apt. Developer Londonewcastle acquired the site and appointed Apt to reinstate a new building “reflective of its location in the centre of London’s theatreland.” Originally designed by architectural


firm Gibson and Russell, Apt have retained the existing building’s street-


facing facade and demolished the building behind to create a new structure that “responds intuitively to the site and surrounding urban fabric.” The historic elements of the project are


balanced with a two-storey extension of ‘copper-like’ cladding and balustrades. The new addition has increased the accommodation on the site, formerly a four-storey building; it now houses six levels of accommodation with private terraces and gardens. These range from studios, three bed


apartments, and two duplex penthouse homes stretching across the upper floors. Each apartment has an individual design, responding to the different floor plans.

improvements to the existing centre, including an extension to the gym that will try to “facilitate and encourage the local community to lead an active lifestyle,” said the architects. On top of this, the practice have designed a variety of additional features, such as a soft play area with dedicated sensory space, an enhanced cafe, and studios offering classes such as yoga, Pilates, and meditation.


“The leisure centre has been modernised over the years, but this latest refurbishment is set to revolutionise and adapt the centre for


years to come” Nathan Swift, Saunders Boston Architects


Director at Saunders Boston, Nathan Swift said: “Ensuring that leisure facilities are meeting the needs of local communities is so important, which is why we put people at the centre of our designs. Leisure centres provide more than a place for exercise, they are also a place for relaxation and socialising – so it’s great to be able to retain the centre’s history while adapting it for the modern-day gym-goer.”
